Not quite up to the scale of the legendary IAT figher line ups of years gone by, but it was nice to see a Tiffie line up at RIAT 13. There was a representative from each RAF unit and these two Italian examples. No Spaniards or Germans, sadly..

The RAF's newest Typhoon squadron based at RAF Leuchars (for now). Sign of the times that 7 years after the first operational squadron formed we have just got to 4 operational squadrons, with one more due next…
