The delivery follows an official roll-out event held on 15 May 2017 at BAE Systems’ site at Warton, UK, during which the first Typhoon and Hawk aircraft were formally presented to the customer in front of an invited audience including His Excellency Sayyid Badr bin Saud al Busaidi, the Sultanate of Oman’s Minister Responsible For Defence Affairs (MRDA), and the Commander of the Royal Air Force of Oman.
