Alan Garwood, Group Business Development Director for BAE Systems, leading the team at the show said: “We are extremely proud to have played a major part in honouring the centenary of the Finnish Air Force. Our team from across the Eurofighter companies, and our partners, worked extremely hard to showcase the aircraft and were delighted to welcome the public and dignitaries from across the military, industry and politics in Finland. The presence of Eurofighter aircraft from all four European partner nations was a fantastic tribute as part of what is a landmark celebration.”
