Fairford Air Show - 1 Hour drive
Held annually each July at RAF Fairford in Gloucestershire, the Royal International Air Tattoo is one of the world’s largest military airshows and has gained a reputation as one of the countries and indeed the UK’s, top outdoor family events.
And this year’s weekend spectacular is set to be no exception. Taking place on Saturday 20 and Sunday 21 July 2013, hundreds of aircraft and upwards of 120,000 visitors are expected at the Cotswolds event – with the stunningly choreographed flying displays providing the opportunity to see fast jets, giant transporters and historic aircraft in action.
While specific details of the 2013 event are still to be confirmed, visitors can expect exciting performances by the world’s leading aerobatic teams, special flypasts, the chance to meet the crews, get close to the aircraft and have a go on the flight simulators – with plenty more sideline attractions and refreshments available during the summer weekend highlight.
