Two Hawker Typhoon IBs of No 3 Squadron RAF (circa 1943) fly in fanciful formation with a Eurofighter Typhoon, also of No 3 Sqadron, of today.

Panavia Tornado F.3 of No.5 Squadron RAF flies in fanciful formation with a prototype Hawker Tornado powered by a 1,706HP Rolls Royce Vulture II engine. Although several prototypes were built, trouble with the Vulture engine resulted in the Tornado giving way to the Hawker Typhoon.
