Description

Squadron Prints Lithograph No. 1441 - 7L-WA, EF2000, Uberwachungsgeschwader, Fliegerhorst Hintertoisser, Zeltweg. The Surveillance Wing was established in 1976, following the amalgamation of the Jet School Squadron Zeltweg and the Fighter Bomber Squadron Graz-Thalerhof. A significant milestone was, without doubt, the arrival of the Saab S-35OE "Draken" for pilot training in 1987 and, thus, the Austrian Air Force’s entry into the Supersonic Age. After the withdrawal of the last remaining "Draken" from service in 2005 and a transitional period operating 12 Northrop F-5E "Tiger II" aircraft leased from Switzerland as a stop-gap measure, the Republic of Austria took delivery of its first Eurofighter "Typhoon", serial number 7L-WA, on 12 July 2007. Since then, the Surveillance Wing, with its bases in Zeltweg and Linz-Horsching, has relied upon the Eurofighter "Typhoon" and Saab 105OE to maintain the sovereignty of Austrian airspace.
