Eurofighter Typhoon Gets Spitfire Livery for Battle of Britain's 75th Anniversary

By Gary Cutlack on at

In some alternative universe where we're still at war with Germany, here's what we're flying (remotely, from a war centre in Wales). It's a Eurofighter Typhoon made up in the classic colours of the fighters of old. This one has the markings of 249 Squadron's Flight Lieutenant James Brindley Nicolson, a Victoria Cross winner from our generation of heroes who shot down an enemy fighter as his own plane burned.
