Display Of Dutch Firepower At Air Tattoo

Published: 03 Jun 2016


The Royal Netherlands Air Force has added to its Air Tattoo 2016 commitment with the confirmation of an exciting display from its Apache Demo Team. 

The Dutch Helicopter Command will be taking to the skies to illustrate the agility and menace of the AH-64D Apache with a sequence that has become a firm favourite of Air Tattoo spectators.  

Featuring fast passes, high energy turns and even loops, the 301 'Redskins' Squadron combine battlefield tactics with raw flying skill to show off the aircraft in impressive fashion.

A sizeable Dutch contingent will also be visiting the static park. A Dornier Do-228, operated by the Dutch Coastguard, a CH-47 Chinook transport helicopter and two larger fixed-wing aircraft, the C-130H Hercules and KDC-10 tanker, are all welcome additions to this year's Air Tattoo.   

“It was an epic spectacle, as magical as anything you've ever seen in the West End, and as loud as anything you've ever heard at Knebworth.”

Jeremy Clarkson, Television Presenter

“All the thrills, excitement and noise of a Grand Prix, but in the air!”

Jenson Button, Formula 1 Racing Driver

“This is the best airshow!”

Buzz Aldrin, Apollo 11 Astronaut
