Well now you come to mention it... The British Aerospace EAP technology demonstrator that went on to be developed into the Eurofighter Typhoon first flew in 1986.. it's 31 years old. So the general Eurofighter airframe design is already older than the Sopwith Camel was at the dawn of the jet age

I guess this illustrated how slowly modern aircraft are developing compared to the early days of aviation.
