RE-LIVE all the thrills and excitement from one of this year’s greatest aviation events with the Royal International Air Tattoo’s official 2013 DVD featuring exclusive interviews, dramatic in-cockpit footage and a fascinating glimpse behind-the-scenes.
From fast jets and vintage warbirds to aerobatic display teams and role demos, the official Royal International Air Tattoo 2013 DVD is a must-buy for aviation fans of all ages.
Also included is footage of three memorable flypasts: the RAF Red Arrows alongside a giant British Airways’ Airbus A380; the Red Arrows with an Airbus Military A400M ‘Atlas’, plus a commemorative flypast by the BBMF Lancaster and an RAF Tornado GR4 from 617 Sqn, to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the legendary Dambusters’ Raid.
Filmed in High Definition and featuring multiple camera angles, including on-board and on-wing footage, this year’s official DVD, produced by The Media Group, features the pick of the action from the world’s greatest airshow held at RAF Fairford in the Cotswolds.
Among the many highlights were displays by the Polish Air Force MiG-29, Hungarian and Swedish Air Force Gripens, French Air Force Rafale, RAF Typhoon and the Italian Air Force C-27J Spartan. Warbird and vintage aircraft enthusiasts were rewarded with displays by Avro Vulcan XH558, Plane Sailing’s PBY-5A Catalina flying boat, Classic Air Force’s Gloster Meteor T7 and Red Bull’s B-25J Mitchell and Vought F4U-4 Corsair.
Special Under The Radar features turn the spotlight on Boeing Stearman pilot Tracey Curtis-Taylor, who is planning to recreate Mary Heath’s historic 1928 Cape Town to London flight and the teams behind Canberra XH134, Vulcan XH558 and RAF Live!
The DVD also includes interviews with a wide variety of participants, supporters and organisers including Air Tattoo co-founder Tim Prince, the Patrouille de France, the Red Arrows, the Flying Bulls and Air Tattoo Honorary Vice Patron Sir David Jason.
Also featured is a tanking demo flypast by an Italian Air Force KC767 and two typhoons plus a special Eurocopter UK emergency services demo illustrating the role helicopters play in bringing specialist equipment and people rapidly to a scene.
Air Tattoo Chief Executive Tim Prince said: “This superb DVD not only captures all the action and excitement from this summer’s Air Tattoo but it also gives viewers a pilot’s-eye perspective of many of the incredible displays. There’s also the chance to meet pilots, organisers, volunteers and supporters who bring together this unique aviation event each year.”
