A Jaguar did this on the M55 back in the mid 70s:


There have been Tornados too. The A10s practice it all of the time.

Not exactly new!

I don’t think anybody’s claiming it’s a new capability. Just the first time an RAF Typhoon has used it, making it noteworthy.

"Crazy"?

As if infinitely planned and analysed military excercises would ever include 'crazy'.
As inaccurate, infantile, overwrought and devoid of reality as the yootoob generation usually is with the content of their mangled text.

Another ‘news’ source has the same story but with a picture of a Norwegian F-35 captioned “RAF Typhoon”.

Until then I'll have to look out for the Viggens and Gripens who do it in Sweden.(if they still fly Viggens that is)
Whose F18 was it anyway?

The point of the post was that the photo is of an F-18 illustrating an article about Typhoons.

Is a newspaper posting the wrong picture to illustrate an aviation story really news? Most of them don't know their a*se from their elbow
