The Royal International Air Tattoo

Caboose & Co are so excited to have popped up at The Royal International Air Tattoo Festival 13-15 July 2018!

At Air Tattoo 2018, we have 18 Cabooses set up as home to the RAF Charitable Trust’s volunteers for the weekend. The Air Tattoo relies heavily on the RAF Charitable Trust volunteers to help run the festival and we wanted to give them somewhere special and comfortable to lay their heads after a busy and exciting day. There are 36 bedrooms set up for them, each with en-suite, electricity, water and a super-comfy proper bed!

This year the Air Tattoo, is being held in Fairford, Gloucestershire, commemorating, and celebrating with RAF100 and it’s centenary! The Air Tattoo is staging the international celebration for RAF100, and air forces from around the world will join us to give a ‘global salute’ to the Royal Air Force.

he Duke of Kent and HRH Prince Michael of Kent will be there and flypasts featuring operational aircraft such as the new Lightning, Typhoons, Tornado GR4s, the Red Arrows and also Puma and Chinook helicopters are scheduled. Also set to feature are RAF100 themed flypasts starring a special ‘617 Squadron Tribute’ of Battle of Britain Memorial Flight (BBMF) Lancaster, Tornado GR4 and the new Lightening jet.

As well as the exciting flypasts, there will be a large area on the ground dedicated to RAF Centenary. Visitors will be able to glimpse into the RAF’s past, present and future with aircraft available to view. As well as this, visitors will get the chance to meet with those currently serving in the RAF and learn about the variety of roles they experience as part of today’s RAF.

We hope to see you there!
