Captain George Joins Parents At Royal International Air Tattoo
Prince George has joined his parents for a day at the Royal International Air Tattoo a RAF Fairford in Gloucestershire. The young Prince was allowed to sit in the cockpit of a number of different aircrafts as a pair of blue earmuffs protected his ears from the noise.
He was first a little hesitant, preferring to be in the arms of either mum or dad, but soon warmed up to the planes as Prince William sat him in a Red Arrow Hawk as a member of the Red Arrows crew pointed out the different controls. Another cockpit that received a small royal guest was the Australian Air Force craft that is part of the show.
The family also climbed aboard a Squirrel helicopter, which the Duke trained in during his time at RAF Shawbury back in 2009. After one part of the visit, George was wearing a large blue RAIT sticker on his white polo shirt.
The RAIT is held to raise funds for the Royal Air Force Charitable Trust.Filed under The United Kingdom
