While the aircrew has a vital role in protecting our country - there are many more people who play their part in getting these hi-tech jets off the ground.
From chefs and security to personnel support and logistics, it takes a team of multi-skilled professionals to make the Quick Reaction Alert mission possible.
RAF Lossiemouth Station Commander, Group Captain Jim Walls said: "Every job's vital, there's not a single job that isn't part of the overall mission.
"If we didn't do them, we can't deliver the mission and for us here it's a 24-hour business as well... we are always active, we are always on operations."
Forces News was given access to RAF Lossiemouth to see how the day-to-day work keeps the RAF and the Eurofighter Typhoon in the skies:
But what about building a Typhoon?
Building the RAF Typhoon, one of the most advanced fighter jets in the world, would pose a significant challenge for any aerospace company, but few would think that lunar cycles would have a prominent part to play in its design.
But this was exactly the challenge workers had to overcome while working on the Typhoon.
At BAE’s Warton factory near Preston, Lancashire, geological surveys showed that the earth would move fractionally - by just one or two millimeters - as the final parts for the twin-engine jet packed with delicate electronic gadgetry were moved into place.
“Every time the moon pulls the tide in and out, the ground under our feet actually moves by between one and two millimetres. That might not sound a lot, but given the tolerances we are working to on Typhoon, two millimetres is two millimetres too much.”
