Eurofighter Typhoon FGR.4 - ZK349 Battle of Britain 75th Anniversary Scheme

Battle of Britain 75th Anniversary “Hawker Hurricane” Livery

As the UK marks the 75th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain during the summer of 2015, the Royal Air Force has commemorated this important event in Britain’s history by presenting one of its current front-line aircraft in the paint scheme of a Hawker Hurricane flown during the Battle.

Eurofighter Typhoon FGR.4 (ZK349) of 29(R) Squadron, based at RAF Coningsby, is making a very distinctive tribute to the only Fighter Command pilot to be awarded the Victoria Cross, during the Battle of Britain – Flt. Lt. Eric James Brindley Nicolson. Typhoon ZK349 has been painted in the colours of Flt. Lt. Nicolson’s 249 Squadron Hawker Hurricane Mk.I GN-A (P3576), which was involved in combat with Messerschmitt Bf 110s of the Luftwaffe over Southampton, on 16th August 1940. Whilst attempting to bale out of his burning Hurricane, Nicolson saw a Bf 110 pass in front of his aircraft and, without thought for his own safety, immediately climbed back into his seat and fired on the German aircraft, causing it to dive away to its destruction. Only then did Nicolson make good his escape, but not before sustaining significant injuries.

Eurofighter Typhoon ZK349 will certainly be in great demand in 2015, as it is scheduled to perform a ‘synchro pair’ routine with one of the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight Spitfires, at a number of UK air show events this summer. She will make a unique and colourful contribution to the 75th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain.
