Now, this if for all the folks that wonder how some of these wonderful up close and personal shots are taken of fighters to help sell and promote them.

Here is a series of shots taken of what I think is the Euro Fighter, the guys in this Cargo aircraft have their camera's and such mounted down and secured to take this series of wonder pictures...truly amazing but if anybody there had dropped a pen, glove or whatever...it would have been a big time FOD but since that did not happen, you see these amazing pictures.

Sent to me by a friend.....all I can say is WOW!

I believe this is a Typhoon, you guys tell me but she is SWEET whatever it is.

Those photos are genuine and it is a Typhoon.

It was filmed over North East Lincolnshire from a C-130 for a RAF Recruitment TV Advert known as "you don't have to be a pilot to fly in the RAF".

Witnesses on the ground described the Typhoon trying to park its nose on the loading ramp.

Very nice pics, it seems the camera man deliberately moves back and increases the focal length to make the Eurofighter appear closer and bigger. The size of the frustums (buttons?) and lack of floor are good hints.
