The RAF Typhoon Display Team have revealed their newly painted display aircraft for the 2024 Display Season at RAF Coningsby.

ZJ913 is now adorned with a D-Day inspired livery, originally worn by a Hawker Typhoon in 1944. Sporting the letters FM-G, last flown by Sqn Denzil Jenkins of 257 Sqn RAF on D-Day. FM was the lettering of 257 Sqn RAF and G was the markings of Sqn Denzil Jenkins aircraft. The aircraft has affectionately been named Moggy as the placement of the letters around the roundel makes it look like FMOG.

Sqn Denzil Jenkins began the war as an airman and was commissioned as an officer in Jan 1944, aged 22. He later became Officer Commanding (OC) 257 and was decorated with the Distinguished Flying Cross.


Painted by the in-house team at RAF Coningsby the aircraft has been designed to commemorate and celebrate the 80th anniversary of Op OVERLORD. Historical touches include RAF Tactical Recognition Flash and the D-Day invasion features.

The Display pilot for 2024 is David “Turbo” Turnbull who designed his display routine with the scheme in mind and commented that is would be especially poignant to be the 2024 display pilot with this paint scheme as the D Day stripes mean so much to the UK’s history.
