Eurofighter is to make its public flying debut over continental Europe at the Paris air show next month. The four-nation combat jet flew in public at last year’s Farnborough air show, but British Aerospace, which has a 37.5% stake in the project, promises a more thrilling performance in Paris thanks to further advances in its flight test programme.
