ONE of the most widely-read newspapers in the United States has featured the Royal International Air Tattoo among its top 10 best airshows in the world.
USA Today, which has more than two million readers, listed the Air Tattoo alongside other aviation events in Canada, Germany, Florida and Nevada.
It stated: “The Royal International Air Tattoo should top your list of must-see events. RIAT has in-air performances, two miles of stationary aircraft to check out and interactive activities for visitors of all ages.”
Other shows on the list are the Florida International Air Show, Tannkosh in Germany, Canada’s Abbotsford Airshow and Bournemouth Air Festival.
Earlier this year, a leading UK aviation website – UK Airshow Review – announced that the Air Tattoo had provided six of the top 10 airshow moments of 2012.
Air Tattoo spokesman Richard Arquati said it was great to know the Air Tattoo’s reputation stretched across the Atlantic.
“Our aim is to create a memorable family day out that blends all the thrills of a seven-hour flying display with an exciting range of interactive entertainment on the ground,” he said.
Tickets for this summer’s Air Tattoo, which takes place at RAF Fairford on July 20-21, can be purchased online at airtattoo.com or by calling 0800 107 1940.
