RAF Battle of Britain Memorial Flight

Three iconic aircraft from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight are again very welcome additions to the Air Tattoo's flying display.

Hot on the heels of taking part in official celebrations marking The Queen's Diamond Jubilee, the BBMF Lancaster, one of only two flying Lancasters in the world, will be joined by a Spitfire and a Hurricane at RAF Fairford.

Air Tattoo Chief Executive Tim Prince said: "The flying display would not be the same without the graceful Spitfire, majestic Lancaster and legendary Hurricane and the distinctive sound of the their six Merlin engines,. Not only do these classic warbirds remind us of a bygone age but of the eternal debt we owe to 'the many' and 'the few'."

“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
