Chinook Display to Wow Fairford Crowds

Published: 03 Jul 2016


We can now confirm that the RAF Chinook display team will be taking part in this year's Air Tattoo flying display.

The Chinook HC.4, based at RAF Odiham, is a firm favourite of airshow crowds as it demonstrates amazing maneuverability for such a large aircraft. The crews will showcase the power, agility and grace of this 15 tonne helicopter to the Air Tattoo on all three show days.

Other confirmations include a Spitfire TR.9 from the Boutlbee Academy, which will be taking part in the flying display on Saturday and Sunday, as well as a mix of aircraft for the static line up. These include an Army Air Corps Apache, Belgian F-16AM and two aircraft from UK manufacturer Britten-Norman, the Islander and Defender.
