In September 2012 No. 1 (F) Squadron reformed at RAF Leuchars and equipped with the new Eurofighter Typhoon. In September 2014 the squadron moved operations to RAF Lossiemouth to join No. 6 Squadron, XV (R) Squadron, “D” Flight, No. 202 Squadron (SAR) and No. 5 Force Protection Wing. No. 1 (F) Squadron has the distinction of being the first fly VTOL aircraft. In July 2020 the main runway at RAF Lossiemouth was being resurfaced so the Typhoons were to move to Kinloss Barracks and the QRA jets to deploy to Leuchars.

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.
