"Will be a highlight of air shows": a new "patriotic" paint scheme for British Typhoon fighters

47

The 29th Squadron of the British Air Force, based in Coningsby, Lincolnshire, has unveiled the Typhoon fighter with a "very patriotic paint scheme," the country's Defense Department said.


In this livery, the plane will become the highlight of the airshows

- noted in the British edition of the UK Defense Journal.

I am extremely proud to literally wave the country's flag on this plane. I'm sure airshow viewers over the next two years will share some of this pride when they see the plane.

- said the pilot of the Typhoon fighter.

29th Squadron Commander Jim Calvert explained:

We are extremely honored to showcase the Typhoon in stunning livery. This new paint scheme gives me great pride.


It is assumed that aircraft with the British flag for the entire hull will participate in air shows in the country and abroad. They will also be used by pilots from the Coningsby Squadron, which specializes in training Typhoon pilots.

The Typhoon FGR4 / T3 is, along with the F-35B, one of two fighter models operated by the British aviation... Earlier, until 2020, the Tornado aircraft was also in service.

    This livery is no longer in trend.
    Now, if it was decorated with the LGBT flag or written "The life of blacks matters," then yes, it would be very patriotic and modern.

        The British perfectly understand the meaning of camouflage coloring (the Boers taught).
        This is Avisalon. This is where the planes should be clearly visible in the air.
        So it's bright, noticeable and you can't confuse whose plane it is

        The glider has a rather boring and uninteresting profile and contours.
        It looks old-fashioned and dull.

        And so, brightly colored, it looks motley.

      The British flag has been very popularized by British rock musicians. Almost all of them used the British Flag on their albums or in their performances, especially for this "Iron MAiden" and "Saxon" became famous. Unlike Soviet / Russian rock bands. Moreover, the British strongly encouraged the promotion of their culture to other countries. Livanov and Solomin were given orders for what? "For the promotion of BRITISH culture". For example, I would give Arnold a medal "for creating a positive image of the Soviet policeman."

          I love Aria since I was 11. As a batin friend, he gave me the discs "Black Sabbath" and "Screaming for vengeance" so he led me to metal. Then there was Aria, Black Coffee, Master, Hard Day, and even (have mercy One) Corrosion of Metal. And then I found WASP and Iron Maiden and everyone else. I still listen. Metal is our everything. As for Aria, I personally don't really see the difference between Aria and Iron Maiden. Moreover, I put a couple of songs to my friends, more than once or twice the people made fun of how it is possible to be so similar to Maiden and not be Maiden :-). Especially the guys who played in the Iron Maiden tribute Bands laughed. Although, to be honest, in Aria's songs I often hear almost completely copied Maiden melodies. But that doesn't make Aria any worse. If you like NWOBHM, there is never too much of it. There is never too much good metal. Up the Irons ...

    Why not. The British fighter MUST be painted in a Union Jack for demonstration. This is NORM. Naturally, he will not fly better because of this. But it won't fly any worse. But patriotism, even if it is jingoism, is important and useful. Why are Iron maiden, Saxon and others under the BRITISH flag? Why does the "Sabaton" group make songs about the Defense of Moscow, about the Battle of Kursk? And why Russian (or Russian, since there are Russians, it means like Russian) musicians DO NOT write about it? The same Aria wrote the epic "1100", and since then not a single patreotic song at all. Why Bruce Dickenson goes on stage, even in the United States with the British flag and in the Red Jacket of the British Army, when our American uryakalka start yapping at him, he answers "Firstly, I'm an Englishman, and secondly, the song is about the heroism of British soldiers."
    Why, when some American jock barked that, they say, Taiwan is a "country", then the Chinese (citizens, not politicians) beat him up in social networks so that he apologized for a long time ... And in Chinese. Patriotism is not something that is normal, it is a NORM. Even jingoism is better than pouring mud on your country and its history. This is what the librasts are doing both here, in Russia, and here in the United States ...
    Our "Blue Angels" and "Thunderbirds" fly in red-white-blue colors. And it is right. And thank all the gods and demons of all patreons that so far neither our NATO nor Japanese Air Force and equipment bears the color of "LGBT" and other schizophrenic multicultural madness. And they don't fly with UN flags.

      Considering that the United States is fugitive British colony...
      The question is -
      Bruce Dickenson, when he performs in Dublin, also goes on stage with the flag of Britain and in the uniform of British soldiers? (maybe he hasn't performed in Dublin yet ...)

        My answer is, during the concert in DUBLIN, during the song "Trooper", Bruce Dickinson, as always, went out in the Red Jacket and with the Union Jack. I repeat, Iron Maiden and many others do not bend under anyone. "Iron maiden can't be bought, Iron Maiden can't be stopped" :-) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0WSfi_b5dw4 43:00 min.

        Bruce Dickinson - ENGLISH. Not Irish, not Scots, and not Welshets. By the way, Bruce does not care, even when he is in Ireland, the British flag is always on stage, and for the song "Trooper" he always appears in a red caftan, and yes, the song "Aces High", a Spitfire model with British identification marks sometimes hovers over the stage, not with the Irish. Even when he is performing in Germany. Bruce, and the whole of Maiden, and Saxon, do not bend under anyone. And even when tickets for 80 bucks are sold out, even in the USA where metal is not popular. American Uryakalki, as well as Irish patriots, may not come to concerts. Just like me, a US citizen, and I have an AMERICAN flag on my car, and a "US ARMY" sticker. If some mex or other "oppressed" don't like it, they can act according to the scheme "Chumadan, station, Benin's mother". And when I went on vacation to Europe, I calmly wore T-shirts and caps "US Army" and "I love Wisconsin". Whoever doesn't like it, could not talk to me.
        To critics of this ashtray I will say that:
        a) I don't think the SU-35 is better. Especially on REO and missiles.
        b) Since childhood, I have always liked Canarda planes. As soon as I found a 3-dimensional drawing of KFIR, I immediately blinded it. Not because it is Israeli, but because it is unusual. I was then 11 years old, by the way. I still have a liking for Canard aircraft, and the French generally make BEAUTIFUL aircraft. What Mirages, what Jaguar, what Rafal. Aesthetes ... :-)

        c) Loving your country is not in words but in deeds. As Puchkov says - start with yourself, stop urinating in porches and throwing garbage in the forest cage and on the streets and lawns. By the way, it applies equally to the United States. In black and mexot ghettos, stench and filth. Interestingly, is it that white people go there, scatter needles and garbage, urinate and defecate on the streets, and paint houses in graffiti? No, all by yourself. And white Amrikans, at home on carpets often walk in sneakers, and then wonder why the carpets are always dirty, they probably need to be changed.

        However, in the USA and Europe, "cultures" were introduced by draconian methods. Especially in Germany and England, there "love of cleanliness and order" was driven in with whips, fines and confiscations (half - to the informer). Unfortunately, most people only understand the arguments from the "Stick on the Ridge" series.

        Well, if we talk about "Patriots of Ireland", then with the same tone you can talk about "patriots of Ukraine" (by the way, show me it on a map of the 18th century, or 19th, or 17th, or 16th), or "Patriots of Belarus" (then the same), or the patriots of Estonia (see the same arguments) and further down the list, the same Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, and further, further, further .... Any land over which the flag of the country has been raised. Whether it's the Soviet / Russian flag or British, or Chinese, or Honduran or German, by definition, becoming a part of this country and giving it back is a betrayal and a crime. You can lose these lands during the war, but GIVING them is a crime and betrayal.

    Interesting coloring. The English flag looks great because it has a complex pattern. Naturally, it is used as a decoration. American is also tricky, it's good to use it too. In theory, the British could even make a camouflage paint from a flag in a non-colored version.
