The RAF's new Typhoon will be among the many aircraft expected to impress the crowds at this year's RNAS Culdrose Air Day.

Taking part in its first display season, the Typhoon will be put through its paces during the flying display on Wednesday, July 20, which will also feature two of the world's top military aerobatic display teams - the Red Arrows and the Royal Jordanian Falcons.

Bad weather has disrupted the Air Day flying display for the past two years. Last year, visibility was so poor the majority of the display had to be cancelled.

Organisers will be keeping their fingers crossed for fine weather this time around, ensuring the spectacular aerobatics that thrill the crowds watching on the ground can go ahead.

Also scheduled to take part in the display are a Royal Navy Sea Harrier, the Black Seahawks, Tornado, Nimrod and Hercules, as well as Merlin, Sea King and Chinook helicopters, which will be displaying their remarkable agility.

A host of aircraft from several NATO countries will also be taking part, making Air Day 2005 a truly international event.
