RAF wants to extend Typhoon life

The RAF has begun looking into the feasibility of extending the life of it's Typhoon fighters beyond 6000 flying hours. This would extend the type beyond it's OSD of 2030. The RAF are confident it can be done citeing the Tornado which has been extended to 8000 hours. Oddly enough but not really surprisingly the UK flies it's Typhoons more than the other builder nations Germany, Italy and Spain yet has ordered the least amount of spares.
