RAF 100

Slovak MiG-29

Following an absence of 13 years, a MiG-29UB from the Slovak Air Force will once again touch down at RAF Fairford in Gloucestershire - much to the delight of the thousands of fast jet fans attending next week's Air Tattoo.

The return of the Slovak Air Force to the Air Tattoo is extremely welcome, especially given that the air arm last appeared at the show in 2000, and has not sent a MiG-29 since 1999.

Not for many years either has the Air Tattoo boasted 'Fulcrums' from two different countries, with the flying display this year by a Polish example adding to the Slovak jet's static showing.

The aircraft will be joined on static display by a Slovak Air Force Let-410, a twin engined, short range transport aircraft.

“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
