Air Tattoo offers something for the weekend

Special discounted two-day ticket for 17 & 18 July 
Organisers of this summer’s Royal International Air Tattoo at nearby RAF Fairford believe there will be so much for people to see and do at the airshow that they are offering a special discounted two-day ticket.
The Air Tattoo, which takes place on July 17 & 18, not only stages a seven-and-a-half-hour flying display but it also features a large, static aircraft park and a wide range of ground-based entertainment and interactive activities.

17 & 18 July 2010
Deputy Director of Marketing Helen Webb said the decision to introduce the new weekend ticket was in response to feedback from the public who said there wasn’t enough time in one day to enjoy all the attractions.
“We open our gates at 7.30am and don’t close them until 8.30pm but even then, the feedback we get is that people need more time to see everything.
"I believe the best way to make the most of the Air Tattoo is to spend one day enjoying the thrilling flying display and free evening concert with the second day spent exploring the static aircraft park and the many showground attractions.”
Battle of Britain anniversary
In addition to aerial displays by a range of fast jets, helicopters, large transport aircraft, aerobatics display teams and historic warbirds, this summer’s Air Tattoo features a Battle of Britain airfield, the Extreme Trial Motorcycle Stunt team, a display arena, a robot arena, a fairground, a large display of classic cars plus concerts by Queen and Beatles tribute bands.
There is also the opportunity for people to try water-zorbing and an off-road driving challenge.
The Air Tattoo, which is held in support of the Royal Air Force Charitable Trust, is the world’s largest military airshow and attracts around 300 aircraft from across the globe.
This summer’s event will stage special tributes marking the 70th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain.
The weekend ticket costs £65, representing a saving of £10 on the cost of two individual Saturday and Sunday tickets.
All tickets must be bought in advance.
Admission is free for all under-16s plus there is free parking. For further details visit the Air Tattoo website via the link below...
