Royal Air Force will deploy 8 Typhoons to Japan to perfect cooperation with Japan Air Self-Defense Force (JASDF) and to improve interoperability between different aircraft. Before landing at Japanese Misawa Air Base, British fighters, along with A330 tanker MRTT "Voyager", landed at Butterworth, base of Malaysian Royal Air Force to participate in 'Regional exercise "Bersama Lima 16".

The Royal Malaysian Air Force was formed on 2 June 1958 as the Royal Federation of Malaya Air Force (Tentera Udara Diraja Persekutuan). However, its roots can be traced back to the Malayan Auxiliary Air Force formations of the British Royal Air Force in then colonial British Malaya.
