Swiss Air Force Hornet heading for Air Tattoo

Where: RAF Fairford, Gloucestershire

When: July 19-21

This summer's Air Tattoo at RAF Fairford will feature a display from the Swiss Air Force!

The nation will be sending an F/A-18C Hornet to fly an energetic display of this Cold War-era fighter for Air Tattoo crowds.

Three squadrons in the Swiss Air Force operate the twin-engined, multi-role Hornet. The aircraft's primary role in Switzerland is air policing.

The Swiss are strong supporters of the Air Tattoo, last year sending both the Hornet and PC-7 Display Team to celebrate the Royal Air Force's 100th anniversary.

The Swiss Hornet joins the Spanish Navy's Harrier 'jump jet' as the second confirmed aircraft for the 2019 Air Tattoo, held on July 19-21 at RAF Fairford.

See the Air Tattoo website for more information.
