Date: Issue 121 - April 2023

England in July is an exciting time. The Royal International Air Tattoo, an event that dates back to an air show first held at North Weald Airfield in 1971, is the world's largest military air show held annually in July at RAF Fairford in Gloucestershire, England. The show became the International Air Tattoo in 1976, and recognition of its unique status was granted by Queen Elizabeth II in 1996, when the current Royal International Air Tattoo title was adopted. 

This is an aviation festival, where hundreds and thousands of spectators start to follow the arrivals of aircraft from bases around the globe in the middle of the week and their rehearsal flights, and then staying until they depart.
