Nell McAndrew kicks off Air Tattoo launch

British model Nell McAndrew touched down at the US Air Force Base at RAF Fairford in Gloucestershire for the launch of this summer’s Royal International Air Tattoo, RIAT says.

It adds its front-line fighter Typhoon “faced off against its US counterpart, the F-15, as Nell donned an England shirt to kick-off both the launch of the airshow . . . and England’s chance of victory over the USA in their opening match of the World Cup campaign, at Rustenburg, South Africa, on Saturday.”

Nell posed with USAF Capt Calvin ‘Quake’ Peterson and RAF Flt Lt Jim ‘Woody’ Woodward pose in front of three of the RAF’s strikers: the Typhoon, Tornado and Harrier.

This year’s Air Tattoo takes place from July 17 to 18 at RAF Fairford, when more than 160,000 visitors are expected to view around 300 aircraft from across the world.

The event is staged in support of its parent charity, the Royal Air Force Charitable Trust, which provides financial support to a wide variety of RAF-related projects and initiatives within the RAF family. Since 2005 it has gifted over £1.3 million to worthy causes.

    Wow that looks cool. One of the biggest displays this year will be Royal Navy’s Fleet Air Arm. Also Avro Vulcan.
