Patrouille Suisse

The Patrouille Suisse aerobatic team will be marking their 50th anniversary at this summer's Air Tattoo.

The team made its Air Tattoo debut in 1979, flying Hawker Hunter F58s. In the mid-1990s, the team transferred to the faster and more manoeuvrable Northrop F-5E Tiger II, which they first displayed at the Air Tattoo in 1995.

Like the Red Arrows, the Patrouille Suisse are planning a special flypast at Fairford to celebrate the team's half century.

“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
