In addition, a spectacular air display from the UK Royal Air Force’s Eurofighter Display Team took to the skies.
 
The RAF’s Eurofighter Display Pilot, Flt Lt Jim Peterson, performed a high-intensity demonstration at the two-day event, designed to showcase the power, speed and impressive agility of the multi-role combat aircraft.
 
Eurofighter, which is being considered as part of the HX programme to replace Finland’s current fleet of F/A-18 aircraft, was also one of the highlights of last year’s Finnish Air Force 100th Anniversary Air Show in Jyväskylä and the Finland 100 Anniversary Air Show, which took place in Helsinki in 2017.
 
Below are some of the highlights from last year's event in Jyväskylä.
 
 

Evolving capability

 
Managing Director of BAE Systems Finland, Paul Hitchcock, said ahead of this year's show: “The Eurofighter display has been one of the highlights of recent air shows in Finland and we are delighted that the RAF’s Display Pilot will be back in the air in Turku this year. The capabilities of this aircraft are continually evolving as new technology is developed and, alongside our European partners, we are looking forward to bringing Eurofighter to Finland once again.”
 
The UK, on behalf of its European partners, is leading the Eurofighter HX system solution as a candidate for Finland’s HX programme. Earlier this year, the Eurofighter partners fully revealed for the first time the cutting-edge Eurofighter aircraft system which would defend Finland in the future battlespace should it be chosen as part of the HX competition.
 
Details of the Eurofighter bid were revealed at a press conference in Helsinki, as the UK Government, on behalf of the European consortium including Germany, Italy and Spain, submitted the formal Eurofighter Request for Quotation response to the HX programme.

The Eurofighter platform is designed to meet rapidly emerging challenges, missions and environments for the next 40-plus years. The proposal to HX would give Finland full operational control over its aircraft, as well as support and maintenance, and will provide access to aircraft mission data. It proposes a system which will integrate easily with existing Finnish systems and provide leading capabilities to ensure Eurofighter can operate alongside any generation of aircraft today and tomorrow, delivering mission effectiveness in the most austere or contested of environments.
