British Aerospace EAP

The EAP (Experimental Aircraft Programme) was a technology demonstrator aircraft developed as by British Aerospace during the 1980s and which eventually formed the basis for the Eurofighter Typhoon. EAP is fitted with computer controls, screens replace dials in the cockpit and it features an unusual delta-canard configuration. It was rolled out in April 1986 and made its first flight later that year. Only one EAP was built, and it became part of the RAF Museum’s Test Flight collection in 2014. Our thanks to the RAF Museum for allowing this aircraft to be exhibited outside on the airfield site as part of the Air Show static displays in 2017.
