Tigers Parachute Team will be dropping in at Wings & Wheels

With smoke trailing, flags flying, performing amazing formations both in the air and under the parachute, The Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment's Parachute display team - "The Tigers" – will be dropping into Wings & Wheels on Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th August at Dunsfold Aerodrome near Guildford, Surrey.
The Tigers are one of the most exciting air spectacles our visitors will enjoy over the weekend and, following a salute to the airshow team, visitors to Wings & Wheels can interact with The Tigers as they venture into the main Arena and perform a parachute packing demonstration. They will also be available to chat and sign programmes from the shows official merchandise stand.

Jamie McAllister, Event Director comments: “The Tigers are a fantastic interactive display at Wings & Wheels. They drop into the arena in spectacular style before spending time meeting and greeting our visitors. They are a great addition to the Show and we are looking forward to saluting their arrival.”

The Tigers are the flagship team for the Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment, whose seniority stems from the Tangier Regiment of 1661 thus having the distinction of being the senior English Infantry Regiment of the line. Soldiers of the Regiment are recruited from Kent, Surrey, Sussex, London, Hampshire, Isle of Wight and the Channel Islands. Members of The Tigers consist of volunteers from various battalions of the regiment.
