TO celebrate the launch of the summer edition of Army&You, we’re giving away tickets to the Royal International Air Tattoo – the most spectacular show above earth!
Fifty years ago, a fledgling aerobatic team took off from RAF Fairford, Gloucestershire, to take part in their first public display. Since then, the RAF’s Red Arrows has grown to become one of the UK’s greatest national icons. Next month, the team will return home to the Cotswolds to take part in the Tattoo’s official celebrations.
Sharing centre stage will be the Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II – the world’s most advanced combat aircraft – as well as an exciting mix of fast jets, historic warbirds, giant transporters, helicopters and the world’s leading aerobatic display teams. On the ground, take a nostalgic trip down memory lane in the Vintage Village, sample the latest cutting-edge engineering technology or try out adrenalin-fuelled rides.
Tickets are only available in advance from www.airtattoo.com or by calling 0800 107 1940. The event is staged annually in support of the RAF Charitable Trust and this year’s Air Tattoo takes place from 11-13 July.
