UK Plant Rolls Out 'Century' Typhoon

One Hundredth Aircraft Comes Off The Warton In Lancanshire Line

The 100th Typhoon aircraft built in the UK's final assembly facility at Warton in Lancashire has come off the assembly line.

As part of the Eurofighter Typhoon consortium BAE Systems is responsible for the production of key aircraft parts including the front fuselage, foreplanes, windscreen and canopy as well as carrying out the final assembly of all UK Typhoons. The design, development and manufacture of Typhoon sustains more than 100,000 jobs in 400 companies across Europe.

"We're delighted to have achieved this major milestone," said Tom Fillingham, BAE Systems Aircraft Programs Director. "Together with the UK MOD and the RAF, we continue our commitment to enhance and upgrade the aircraft's capabilities. This work known as the Typhoon Future Capability Upgrade programme is vital to the future success of the aircraft both in the UK and for current and potential customers worldwide."

Gary Moore from Defence Equipment and Support MOD accepted the aircraft on behalf of the RAF. He said: "I'm very proud to be accepting the 100th Typhoon. I've worked on the program for over fourteen years including design and development to acceptance of the first twin seat production aircraft back in 2003."
