Eurofighter marks 10 years since first flight


Cassidan is marking a decade since the first series production Eurofighter took off on its maiden flight from the company’s Military Air Systems Centre in Manching, Germany. The aircraft was later delivered to the German Air Force School of Engineering, where it has since been used to train ground personnel.

The day after the German launch, the first British and Italian series production Eurofighter aircraft took their first flights from BAE Systems in Warton and Alenia Aermacchi in Turin. The Spanish version followed a few days later from Cassidian in Getafe.

The Eurofighter has been floated as a possible replacement for Canada’s CF-18s.
