Typhoons debut in Central Europe

Two Typhoons from the 11 Sq RAF flew to Ostrava airport, Czech Republic, on the past Friday 14 September, to participate in the country s NATO Day celebrations.
Thoundsands of people could see the RAFs newest fighter aircraft make its debut appearance in Central Europe.
The two-day event took place on Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 September 2007, and is billed as a NATO capability demonstration. But it is also the Czech Republic s entry on the annual world air display calendar. Last years event attracted a crowd of 55,000 people.
-I welcomed the Typhoon pilots to the Czech Republic and wished them all the best. Even at 90-years-old it feels quite emotional to meet fellow RAF pilots as it reminds me of the friends I fought with during the war.-said General František Škarvada, who served in the RAF during the World War Two.
More than 2,000 Czechs and Slovaks served with the RAF during that war.
NATO Day in Ostrava is a unique event in the Czech Republic and Central Europe. It is non-commercial and admission is free of charge and this year s event marks the 10th anniversary of the Czech Republic and Hungary being invited to join NATO at the Madrid summit in 1997.
