From May 11 until May 18, a week-long military training event will be held at Leeds Bradford Airport.

A spokesman for Leeds Bradford Airport said:
“From 11-18th May, LBA will be hosting a Military training week with aircraft from the UK and overseas operating at the airport. Look to the skies for some unusual visitors.”

The Typhoon aircraft provide the UK with a 24 hour 365 day defence service. The RAF says its remit is to respond to threats, prevent conflict, watch the skies, deliver aid, combat cyber threats and work in partnership with other bodies.

Typhoon Jets are armed and ready to take to the skies. The pilots, when on duty are suited and ready to deploy at a moments notice. If there is an indication of a threat to the UK the pilots will standby in the cockpit, ensuring aircraft can take off as soon as possible.
