Eurofighter Typhoon on QRA interception training with new Lufthansa A380 'Wien'
Austrian Eurofighter pilot Major Gunter Taschler said: "The challenge was how to approach the big wing span of the civil aircraft, in order to make eye contact with the pilot. It is also not that easy to approach the aircraft from below, since the airflow generated by the large surfaces of the aircraft can become difficult for the Eurofighter."
