Broadsword compliments: best 2011 amateur photo of a Eurofighter Typhoon

Note: a photo from Aero India 2011 won the third prize... but this one is a deserving winner

This is the amateur photo of the year of a Eurofighter Typhoon, selected by a panel of judges. The press release from Eurofighter says:

"The eventual winner was Ian Ramsbottom, whose stunning shot of a 17 Sqn Typhoon in the Mach Loop in Wales, UK, left the judges with little to disagree on. In second place was Alvaro Muñoz-Aycuens who took an image of Typhoon in the stormy skies at Duxford Air Show worthy of a renaissance era painting, and in third place was the iconic photo of Typhoon taken at Aero India 2011 in Bangalore by Rajesh Kumar Elumalai, who captured the stark contrast between the white display smoke and the clear blue Indian sky."


  1. Amateur? A flying amateur then...

  2. Dear Col Shukla,

    Is it true that P15A ships will be delivered to the navy only in 2015, 2016 and 2017?? If true and if there are no more slippages then these ships would have taken 12/13 years to build.


  3. is the typhoon really... a air superiority fighter???... and all knows about its ground attack capability... seems labouring under a tight turn... and too much stress on its wings???... can be put for detailed study/analysis... by aero-dynamics engineers/scientists... as we are hearing about f-35 capabilities... can't handle high end aerial threats...

  4. Hmmm... There is 49% chance that India gets EFT as the MMRCA.

  5. Not Aero India Ajai.. this is england valley flying.check out for similar photos. u can stand on some mountains and see aircraft do valley flying. its frm there
