Eurofighter Typhoon 7L-WN Tranche #1 c/n 074/GS011 was the eleventh aircraft manufactured for the Austrian Air Force. This aircraft along with 7L-WB took part in the Austrian Air Force “Air Power 2019” air show held at Zeltweg AB, the home of Austria’s EF-2000 aircraft. Between 2007 and 2009 Austria received 15 EF-2000s and presently wants to replace these aircraft and at one point Indonesia show interest. The Zeltweg AB is known as Fliegerhorst Hinterstoisser, named after an early 20th Century Austrian balloonist.
Designed as part of a co-operative effort by Germany, Italy and the UK to produce an air superiority fighter, the Eurofighter was first flown on March 27th, 1994. The Eurofighter is a single-seat, twin-engine, agile combat aircraft used in air-to-air, air-to-ground and tactical reconnaissance roles. It is intentionally aerodynamically unstable, which gives it its high levels of agility-but this means the Typhoon is controlled by a computerized “fly by wire” system instead of by its pilot. The Eurofighter’s first rate performance is matched by excellent all round vision and by sophisticated attack, identification and defense systems and stealth technology.
