THE Imperial War Museum's latest exhibit, a Eurofighter Typhoon DA4, has gone on show to the public.
An unveiling ceremony was held in the museums AirSpace Conservation Hall, where the Eurofighter Typhoon has been undergoing reassembly and conservation work for the past two months.
Richard Ashton, Director, Imperial War Museum Duxford, said: "I am delighted that we will be presenting Eurofighter Typhoon DA4 as part of our visitor experience, particularly as Duxford played a major part in developing the Hawker Typhoon, and in 1942 the first Typhoon Wing was formed here.
"Duxford is privileged to be able to exhibit the developmental model for an operational RAF aircraft, and one which has such a fine pedigree," he said.
