UK In Action: Typhoon Takeoff

Two 6 Squadron Typhoon jets arrive at Royal Air Force (RAF) Leuchars in Scotland in 2010 to replace the 111 Squadron F3 Tornados previously based there. Typhoon provides the RAF with a multi-role combat aircraft, capable of being deployed in the full spectrum of air operations, from air policing, to peace support, through to high intensity conflict. It is currently employed on permanent ops in the Falkland Islands, UK QRA North and UK QRA South. This image was a winner in the RAF Photographic Competition 2011.
