The RAF Typhoon Display Team have revealed a newly painted display aircraft for the 2024 Display Season at RAF Coningsby.

The aircraft paint scheme includes features that commemorate D-Day, with 2024 being the 80th Anniversary of the allies invading Europe.

The aircraft is painted in a 1944 era ‘Day Fighter’ scheme that remembers a Hawker Typhoon of 257 Squadron, FM-G. On D-Day this aircraft was flown by Pilot Officer Denzel Jenkins.

Jenkins began the war as an airman and was commissioned as an officer in Jan 1944. Later, he became Officer Commanding (OC) 257 and was decorated with the Distinguished Flying Cross .

Bold features, including the RAF Tactical Recognition Flash and the D-Day invasion features, bring heaps of heritage to the display team this year.

The display aircraft ZJ913 will be a regular at airshows around the UK, and will be nicknamed Moggy.

Flight Lieutenant Turnbull from 29 Squadron RAF will be the display pilot for 2024.
