Reds Arrows, F-35B and RAF Typhoons in Special Flypast

We are delighted to announce that visitors to the Air Tattoo will be treated to a show stopping joint flypast featuring the F-35B, two RAF Typhoons and the legendary aerobatic display team, the Red Arrows. This unique flypast will take place on all three days of the airshow.

The two fast jets in the display; F-35B and Typhoon, represent the fast jet component of the UK's future air defence capability. Combined with the world famous Red Arrows this gives visitors the opportunity to capture the perfect Air Tattoo photographic moment.

Special and unique flypasts are a hallmark of the Air Tattoo and one of reasons why we are the world's greatest military airshow! Over the past few years the Red Arrows have flown with Vulcan XH558, BA A380 and the A400M

Typhoon With Full Phase 3 Enhancement Weapons Fit To Fly

A BAE Systems Eurofighter Typhoon aircraft featuring the latest weapons fit will display at the 2016 Air Tattoo.

UK Typhoon aircraft BT17 will take to the skies on all three show days, 8-10 July, with BAE Systems Experimental Test Pilot, Nat Makepeace, at the controls.

The display will demonstrate the Typhoon carrying four Meteor Beyond Visual Range Air to Air missiles, two Brimstone 2 low collateral precision strike weapons, two ASRAAM missiles and two Paveway IV laser guided precision weapons.

Nat Makepeace, BAE Systems Typhoon Experimental Test Pilot, said:

"This is one of the first times a Typhoon aircraft has flown with this weapons fit and it demonstrates the significant milestones which have been achieved towards integration of these new capabilities on to Typhoon, providing the combat pilot with a full range of capabilities.

"Typhoon provides air forces with a highly capable and extremely agile multi-role combat aircraft, capable of being deployed in the full spectrum of air operations.

"This display will also demonstrate that Typhoon, even with this weapons fit, loses none of the incredible agility and manoeuvrability for which it is known."

A significant contracted programme of work is currently being conducted by the Eurofighter Partner Companies, with the support of MBDA, Eurofighter GmbH and the UK Ministry of Defence, towards the integration Phase 2 and Phase 3 Enhancement packages for Typhoon.

Phase 1 Enhancements were delivered on to the aircraft last year, underlining Typhoon as a high-end multi-role weapon system with unmatched air-to-air capability and the integration of Paveway IV for precision air-to-surface operations.

With Phase 2, Typhoon will gain a deep attack capability through the integration of the Storm Shadow air-to-surface deep strike missile and a beyond visual range capability through integration of Meteor.

Phase 3 Enhancements will introduce a low collateral precision strike air-to-surface capability to Typhoon through Brimstone.
