A Royal Air Force Typhoon aircraft is making its first appearance at Dubai Air Show 2009. The Typhoon is capable of being deployed in the full spectrum of air operations, from air policing, to peace support, through to high intensity conflict.

The UK delegation is led by Air Chief Marshal Sir Stephen Dalton, Chief of Air Staff of the Royal Air Force, and Richard Paniguian, Head of the UK Trade and Investment Defence and Security Organisation.

Air Chief Marshal Sir Stephen Dalton, Chief of Air Staff in the Royal Air Force, said a statement to Nation Shield Magazine that "I am delighted with the significant UK presence at Dubai Air Show. The attendance by the Typhoon aircraft reflects the vitally important defence relationship between the UK and UAE, a relationship we value very highly.

Richard Paniguian Head UKTI DSO said: "We are here to encourage UK and UAE companies to network and to identify areas of joint cooperation. The UK has a significant range of world class products across the air, land and maritime sectors".

Squadron Leader "Scotty" Loughran the Typhoon pilot from 29(R) Squadron Royal Air Force said: "I am delighted to have a chance to fly the first Typhoon at Dubai Air Show. It is a great honour to have the opportunity to fly at one of the world's premier Air Shows. I am really looking forward to demonstrating the capabilities of an aircraft which I love flying and I am most grateful to the UAE for kindly inviting me."

Eurofighter Typhoon is the world's most advanced new generation multi-role/swing-role combat aircraft. The UK is the top destination in Europe for inward investment and second globally only to the US. According to a UN report (UNCTAD World Investment Report), it attracted a record $1.347 trillion in 2007.
