Following the success of last year’s Virtual Air Tattoo, aviation fans can again look forward to a first-class feast of flying entertainment next month, with all new, specially commissioned content.
Virtual Air Tattoo to take place on 17th July 2021
On Saturday 17 July join us for the next best thing to the real Air Tattoo with a six-hour, free-to-view, live-streamed virtual event from 10am to 4pm, broadcasting all new content.
Presented once again by Air Tattoo commentators and aviation experts Ben Dunnell and Mark Manwaring, the exclusive programme will feature contributions from the Royal Air Force and air arms from around the globe, with filming at numerous locations having taken place over the last few months.
Making a welcome return will be the virtual flying aces who wowed viewers last year with their aerobatic displays flown, like their real military counterparts, with pinpoint precision. And, with no actual Air Tattoo taking place this summer, the virtual event to turn the spotlight on the airshow’s 50th anniversary with specially filmed packages celebrating this important aviation milestone.
The programme will be filmed by Planes TV and hosted from a live studio and as well as featuring special guests and interviews, the show will invite viewers to get involved via social media, making it great interactive experience. Air Tattoo Head of Marketing Helen Webb said: “Last year’s virtual event attracted an audience of over a million. We received so much positive feedback that we were determined to build on its success. Next month’s Virtual Air Tattoo will look to capture some of the thrills and excitement we would have all enjoyed had we been able to stage the real thing. This includes making sure we have the opportunity to celebrate the airshow’s 50th anniversary. It will be an unmissable event for aviation fans.”
