BAE Systems has delivered the 100th Typhoon advanced multirole combat aircraft for the Royal Air Force (RAF) to Warton, Lancashire, UK.

The aircraft, used for air defence and interception, was accepted by Defence Equipment and Support MoD on behalf of the RAF.

BAE Systems Aircraft programmes director Tom Fillingham said, “The Typhoon future capability upgrade programme is vital to the future success of the aircraft, both in the UK, and for current and potential customers worldwide.”

The company produces key aircraft parts including the front fuselage, foreplanes, windscreen and canopy, as well as carrying out the final assembly of all UK Typhoons.

The RAF, with BAE’s support, ensures the aircraft is fully operational to protect and defend the national air space.
