2 days / 1 night
If you thought a Tattoo involved drums, fifes and men in kilts, you're in for a surprise. This is how the RAF does it, with 7 ½ hours of spectacular aerial action. Jets will streak across the sky, giant transporters will lumber across, historic aircraft will spit and sputter and weave, and the US Air Force Thunderbirds demonstration team will give a special display to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the USAF. And that's just what's going on upstairs, while on the ground there are a huge number of attractions and amazing exhibits to visit too. No wonder it's the world's greatest airshow and one of the UK's premier outdoor events.
We'll also spend an afternoon among over 100 legendary aircraft at the RAF museum London. Here you'll find a Sopwith Camel, a de Havilland Mosquito B.35, an Avro Lancaster B.1 bomber, a Boeing B–17G Flying Fortress, a Halifax, a Liberator, a Tornado, a Hurricane, a Heinkel... New for this year is a First World War in the Air exhibition, plus a life–sized model of the F–35 Joint Strike Fighter, the only model of its type in the world. You can listen to Winston Churchill giving his Battle of Britain speech on radio, and check out the Bomb Bay television view under a Vulcan bomber.
This event is one of the highlights of the year and your weekend includes coach transport and transfers, hotel, evening meal and full English breakfast, so get ready for take–off!
