But the Russians aren't coming

Article over at the Guardian on the birth of the new Eurofighter Typhoon. I have been reading about this aircraft for over 15 years now I think, and played a flight sim for it designed by DID back in in 1995? LOL

No, the pilot was not me:

At the Royal International Air Tattoo on Saturday, there was a Eurofighter on display next to the runway of RAF Fairford in Gloucestershire. And next to the smooth, dark grey warplane, there was a young Eurofighter pilot called Gavin.
