Lightning does strike twice!

Published: 01 Jul 2016

Following the safe arrival of three F-35Bs on Wednesday, yesterday evening saw three more F-35s make the transatlantic crossing to RAF Fairford, this time it was the 'A' variant from the United States Air Force.

This exciting news that we now have SIX F-35s in the UK ready for the Air Tattoo has led to a surge in ticket sales and we anticipate that Sunday tickets will sell out in the next 48 hours (or maybe sooner!).

After 5pm today (Friday 1 July) our telephone lines will close for tickets sales so you will only be able to purchase ONLINE.

Please Buy NOW if you want to witness this historic occasion as well as see around 200 other aircraft in the air and on the ground from 24 countries, travelling from as far afield as Japan, Australia, New Zealand, the US and Canada, as well as many of our European friends.

Don't Miss Out - BUY NOW!
