  • Raymond Blanc



    On Friday 6th July next year you'll both be VIP guests at the Royal International Air Tattoo at RAF Fairford to mark the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.


    It's the world's largest military airshow.


    One of you will take your car straight to the show in Gloucestershire.


    The other winner will go to Coventry airport and will fly down in one of the RAF's most iconic historic aircraft - the De Havilland Vampire T11


    We can only get one passenger on board - hence meeting up at Fairford.


    The Vampire T11 is a two-seater, dual control jet and came into RAF service in 1952, so ties in nicely with the RAF tribute to HM The Queen on her Diamond Jubilee.


    This is a unique chance to fly into the Air Tattoo in a Vampire.


    You'll then stay overnight in a hotel and have the whole of Saturday to please yourselves back at the airshow.

    You'll need to be over 16 years to fly.
