Snapped: Royal International Air Tattoo 2018 - Day 1

Today (13th July), The Air Tattoo touched down at RAF Fairford in Gloucestershire for the first day of spectacular flypasts and jaw-dropping displays! See for yourself below...

The Air Tattoo, one of the UK's premier outdoor events, returned today and will continue over the weekend. The event marks a very special occasion this year; the centenary of the Royal Air Force. As well as commemorating the past achievements, they are also celebrating the present and helping to inspire the future of the RAF. 

Despite the storm, The Air Tattoo 2018 still got off to a flying start!

Few events can rival the intensity, drama and spectacle on offer at the world's greatest airshow. Alongside the thrilling flying action, visitors were treated to non-stop entertainment on the ground - so whether a wide-eyed first timer or a seasoned airshow veteran, the experience was breathtaking.

During the thrilling flying display, visitors got to see fast jets, giant transporters, historic aircraft, and much more. They had a chance to meet the crews, get close to the aircraft and enjoy a feast of first class entertainment.
