German Typhoon boasts special World Cup 2014 victory markings

A German Eurofighter Typhoon has already been painted with special World Cup 2014 markings.

The images in this post were taken by photographer Gian Luca Onnis, at Decimomannu airbase, on Jul. 14, the day after Germany beat Argentine on FIFA World Cup 2014 final.

To celebrate the fourth World Cup won by the German football team, one the German Air Force Eurofighter Typhoons deployed in Sardinia, was decorated with special tail markings.

It’s not the first time European air forces celebrate World Cup victories with special markings: in 2006, the Italian Air Force F-16, Tornado and AMX jets attending TLP course at Florennes, Belgium, sported similar badges to celebrate Italy’s fourth World Cup.
