Typhoons Arrive in Falklands

Two Typhoon aircraft have landed in the Falklands and will be taking over air defence duties from the F3 Tornados, which are being removed from service after 17 years in the Islands.  Powered by twin turbojets, the Typhoons can fly at twice the speed of sound.  They are equipped with air-to-air missiles and a radar capable of tracking multiple long-range targets.  More of the aircraft will arrive in the next few weeks.
