As sponsors of the RAF Typhoon Display Team, we were able to treat some of our key clients to a two-day experience at RAF Coningsby. Our close partnership enabled us to take part in a fantastic range of activities as well as a private display.
The Eurofighter Typhoon display team are one of the most prestigious aerobatic display teams in the world. Of course, we are proud to be associated with the organisation and excited that we can hold such fantastic events for our clients.
The aircraft itself is the result of a consortium of engineering firms BAE Systems, Alenia Aermacchi and Airbus Defence & Space. Ultimately, this results in an impressive feat of engineering as the Typhoon can reach a top speed of Mach 2, or 1,320 mph.
RAF Typhoon Client Event
During the event, we were lucky enough to spend time with some of the members of the 29 Squadron, the elite team tasked with running the display shows of the Typhoon. As well as having a close-up look at the RAF typhoon with a guided tour of the hanger.
Other exciting moments throughout the day came when we were invited to use the state-of-the-art Typhoon simulator, which is used for both simulations as well as training purposes.
Of course, the highlight of the whole experience was being treated to a private display featuring the fantastic Typhoon in it’s new Union Jack Livery.
Toomey Leasing Groups Partnership with the RAF Typhoon Display Team
We have been proud sponsors of the RAF Typhoon Display team for many years. In May we were able to provide them with a Ford Ranger Wildtrack and a Toyota Crolla Estate. Both vehicles are used as support vehicles to aid the team when they put on their high-flying displays throughout the country. In particular, the Ford Ranger is used to tow the support trailer filled with all of the necessary equipment used to facilitate the Typhoon Displays.
