Baltic Air Policing Eurofighter Typhoons
I have to admit, I'm not a fan of the Eurofighter, although I was mightily impressed by the roar of it's afterburners at Farnborough a few years ago. It just looks like a doodle of a futuristic concept fighter by a bored aeronautical student, with too many pointy bits sticking out from a dumpy fuselage for my liking. Anyway, this short but informative video shows the Luftwaffe doing it's thing for the NATO Baltic Air Policing mission, although my German isn't good enough to work out much of the detail. The graphics are very interesting, however, and there are some great shots of the Typhoons as well. Nice but someone really should give that pilot a razor for Xmas?
