UK & World News / New UK jet fighter

The UK has unveiled a full-scale model of a planned new fighter jet, provisionally named Tempest, which would be operated remotely or by a pilot.

The aircraft is intended to replace the Eurofighter Typhoon aircraft, beginning in 2035, and to fly alongside the UK's most recent addition to its fleet, the Lockheed F-35.

BAE, which worked on a consortium to build the Eurofighter jets, is working on the new aircraft without its former partner Airbus, which joined an alliance with French defence company Dassault after Britain voted to leave the European Union in 2016.

Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson unveiled the model at the Farnborough Air Show.

Millions to face hosepipe ban in north-west England

Millions of people will be affected by the first hosepipe ban of the summer in England.

United Utilities (UU) said a temporary ban affecting seven million people in the north-west of England from 5 August would "safeguard essential supplies".

It said reservoir levels were already low and that hot weather was forecast for the rest of July.

Other water companies across England said they had adequate supplies and had no plans to impose similar bans.

Mystery over contents of six foot tall ancient Egyptian sarcophagus discovered in Alexandria
The granite tomb, the biggest ever found in the city, has lain unopened for more than 2,000 years, and some are wondering whether it might even contain the body of Alexander the Great

Made of black granite, the largest ancient Egyptian sarcophagus ever discovered in Alexandria has lain unopened for more than 2,000 years – and no-one knows quite who, or what, lies inside.

The discovery of the black sarcophagus beneath a modern Alexandria street is causing speculation in Egypt and beyond – with some even suggesting it might be the long lost tomb of Alexander the Great.

Like the 'tomb of Odysseas' at Tzanata, it's probably a later noble.

Sounds great! Is that you on the left, Maik, when you used to live there!   :rofl:

See the local fishmonger is sponsoring the event.  No self-interest of course!
