Royal Navy Set Sail for Air Tattoo

Published: 30 Apr 2019

The Royal Navy will be sending four aircraft to the Air Tattoo in July - as the service begins to ramp up prior to operations aboard its new aircraft carrier, HMS Queen Elizabeth.

Two helicopters and two fixed wing aircraft will fly in from their Cornwall and Somerset bases to join the 17 other air arms that have so far confirmed for the show.

An AW159 Wildcat from RNAS Yeovilton will be joined by a BAE Systems Hawk T.1, Merlin HM.2 and King Air 350 from RNAS Culdrose.

Tickets to the Air Tattoo continue to sell fast, with over 70% of admission tickets now sold for Saturday 20 July.
