Ever thought you’re being watched? Well, turn up to the Royal International Air Tattoo at RAF Fairford in Gloucestershire on July 16 and July 17 and there’s the strong likelihood that you will be as Europe’s largest airshow lifts the lid on the secretive world of aerial surveillance with some of the greatest spy planes from the past 50 years.

And seeing will be believing as organisers promise flying Tigers and other Big Cats at this year’s Tattoo. These brightly-coloured aircraft, from squadrons with Tigers or Big Cats in their emblems, have always been a popular addition to the Tattoo and are guaranteed to receive a huge roar of approval.

The Tattoo also plans to mark the 60th anniversary of the end of World War Two by focusing on the role international aircraft have played in humanitarian and peacekeeping missions since the formation of the United Nations in 1945.

Add to this an eight-hour extravaganza of precision flying by some of the world’s leading Top Gun pilots and breathtaking displays by international aerobatics teams - led by the legendary Red Arrows – and you can be sure of an experience that will live long in the memory.

On the ground, there will be a stimulating display of futuristic technology in the TechnoZone, a chance to be a record-breaker with Guinness World Records, a funfair, simulator rides plus a wide range of interactive activities for the whole family. But that’s not all, as the sun begins to set on a fabulous day’s entertainment, you’ll be invited to enjoy a free, two-hour musical extravaganza.

And remember, with free entry for accompanied children aged 15 and under, the Royal International Air Tattoo is an unbeatable, fun-packed family day out this summer.
