Rafale pictures of the day

High res pictures of the Rafale/Typhoon flight in Scotland last week

Senior Officers in the Royal Air Force and French Air Force traded places on 14 September to fly in Typhoon and Rafale fighter jets in a demonstration of the strong ties which exist between the two air arms.

  1. Rafale and Typhooon are remarkably similar. The former seems to employ more aerodynamic coupling than the later, though. Rafale's canard serves as a secondary vortex/lift generator for its delta wings; Typhoon's canard is so much forward that it [partially blocks pilot's forward-downward vision! and] needs separate vortex generator.
