EXHIBITIONS AND CONFERENCES

18 Mar 10. Owning The Night adds a Forward Operating Base (FOB) to Exhibition. Following on from the decision to move all the Conference and Exhibition to the Stickledown range complex at Bisley, the organisers of Owning The Night, to be held at the National Shooting Centre, Bisley from November 17-19, are adding a Forward Operating Base (FOB) complex which will allow Exhibitors to demonstrate their capabilities in Force Protection technologies.

Mar 10. It’s a case of ‘second time lucky’ for one of the world’s newest and most exciting jet fighters when the F-22 Raptor makes a welcome return to the Cotswolds this summer – two years after its planned UK debut appearance was rained off. Now the aircraft, from the US Air Combat Command, will be returning to the Air Tattoo on July 17&18 to demonstrate why it is capable of outperforming any existing fighter aircraft in air-to-air combat. The Raptor represents a new generation of fighter aircraft incorporating state-of-the-art stealth technology, sophisticated weaponry and vectored thrust giving it an unrivalled combination of secrecy, power and manoeuvrability. Air Tattoo Deputy Director of Air Operations Robert Windsor said he was delighted to see the aircraft return to perform at the Air Tattoo. He said: “The Raptor is one of the jewels in the crown of military aviation and its display in July will be among the highlights of the seven-and-a-half-hour flying display. I recall that the pilot and his ground crew were tremendously friendly and professional throughout their stay with us – despite their obvious disappointment. I am really pleased that they will finally be able to perform for our large and appreciative Air Tattoo audience!”
