Red Arrows Star of UK Air Tattoo

Jul 11, 2014 No Comments by

The Royal Arrows are proving the star attraction at today’s Royal International Air Tattoo. The traditional highlight of their display calendar is currently taking place at RAF Fairford in Gloucestershire, England.

The world’s largest military air show welcomed the squadron today for a full display and flypast. This year, Arrows fans will have the chance to get up close and personal with the jets and meet the engineers who look after them.

They will then take part in a Sunset Flypast alongside aircraft from French, Italian and Swiss aerobatic display teams later today. One plane from each team will join the squadron in the sky before peeling away ahead of the main Red Arrows display.

Online Editor I've been around airplanes since I was a kid. That's when my uncle, a professional pilot, showed me how to fly his Cessna 177 Cardinal. l later became a writer and editor, so covering the exciting and ever-changing aviation industry -- which I've been doing in Flight Journal's Flybys since the late '90s -- was a natural fit.
