The Breitling Jet Team will be returning to this year's Air Tattoo for the first time in five years.

Operating seven L-39 Albatros military jet training aircrafts, the team are world-renowned for their formation flying displays and have displayed in Europe, the Middle East and North America.

Specialising in opposition passes, solo routines and synchronized manoeuvres, the distinctive twin-seater military training jets can reach top speeds of over 700 km/hour.

Head of marketing at the Air Tattoo, Helen Webb said: “The Breitling Jet Team are a highly skilled and energetic in their close formation flying, exactly what we like to see.

"A great mix of experienced civilian pilots in military aircraft and I know they will wow the crowds as they did 5 years ago."

The airshow, which takes place at RAF Fairford between July 19 and 21 promises to amaze and delight spectators with yet another thrilling flying display.

Also taking to the skies are the RAF Red Arrows in their last UK display before flying to North America for their Western Hawk 19 Tour, the Ukrainian Air Force’s Russian-built Sukhoi Su-27 and an airshow favourite the Spanish Navy’s two vertical lift AV-8B Harriers.

In addition to featuring aircraft from around the globe, this summer’s Air Tattoo will host a wide range of interactive activities in its critically-acclaimed Techno Zone, including a planetarium show and a full-scale ExoMars rover prototype from Airbus Defence and Space, which visitors can witness drive across a simulated Martian surface.

Elsewhere on the showground, visitors can explore exhibits in the activity zone, vintage village and RAF experience.
