The RAF Waddington International Air Show has received the first news on which RAF aircraft will dazzle at this year’s Show.
Alongside the much loved Red Arrows who are celebrating their milestone 50th Display Season this year, the Show will also welcome the BBMF Lancaster, Hurricane, Spitfire and Dakota from RAF Coningsby. One of the most anticipated performances of this display season comes from the Typhoon which will be flown by the 2014 Display Pilot, Flt Lt Noel Rees from 29(R) Sqn based at RAF Coningsby.
The Tucano from Linton-on-Ouse, which provides basic fast jet flying training to RAF and Royal Navy student pilots, will also take part in this year’s display, with Flt Lt Dave Kirby behind the controls. This year’s new livery will feature the Royal British Legion logo, poppies and the words ‚Lest we Forget’.
The Grob 115E, known by the RAF as the Tutor, will also demonstrate its capabilities this year. Used for Elementary Flying Training by the 14 University Air Squadrons and 12 Air Experience Flights throughout the UK, the Tutor forms an essential part of the RAF’s capability.
