Future events planned by TECT include talks by Typhoon veterans,and by current Typhoon personnel, attendance at air-shows anddisplays and the annual visits to Normandy, normally in May or JuneWe have formed a special link with the Jet Age Museum, Staverton, near to where the majority of Hawker Typhoons were manufactured and where a Typhoon cockpit section is now restored. Typhoon veterans and Eurofighter Typhoon personnel have attended events at the museum, including the memorable Legion d’Honneur investiture in October 2015.TECT was invited to bring veterans to the launch of the RB396Typhoon restoration project at Goodwood (Westhampnett) and we have a good working relationship with that project.All these activities will serve to strengthen the links betweenthe past, with its stories of heroism and sacrifice, and the present high-speed, high-tech world of the Eurofighter Typhoon.
