Demonstrating the strength of Eurofighter as the core of Europe’s air power, aircraft from the German, UK, Italian and Spanish air forces were proud to line up static display for record crowds of 30,000 people at the Finnish Air Force Centenary Air Show in Jyväskylä, on June 16 and 17.
Eurofighter partner companies BAE Systems, Airbus Defence and Space and Leonardo, alongside team members from MBDA, Rolls-Royce and Eurojet and representatives from the UK Government and partner nation Embassies, presented a European Eurofighter showcase to the public and visiting dignitaries. Military, political and industrial delegations held discussions with the Eurofighter team throughout the event.
Alan Garwood, Group Business Development Director for BAE Systems, leading the team at the show said: “We are extremely proud to have played a major part in honouring the centenary of the Finnish Air Force. Our team from across the Eurofighter companies, and our partners, worked extremely hard to showcase the aircraft and were delighted to welcome the public and dignitaries from across the military, industry and politics in Finland. The presence of Eurofighter aircraft from all four European partner nations was a fantastic tribute as part of what is a landmark celebration.”
