The Princess and Princess of Wales have taken their children to the Royal International Air Tattoo.

The visit to the world’s largest flying show had not been announced beforehand. The family took their time looking at all the planes. The first was a C-17 transport plane, which had been used last September to fly the remains of Queen Elizabeth II from Scotland to London for the funeral.

Prince George was able to move the tailgate on the plane, and he was later allowed to sit in the cockpit of another plane. He had been taken to the event by his parents before when he was just three years old.

His younger sister, Princess Charlotte, and his younger brother, Prince Louis, were also present, although the latter looked decidedly less impressed.

The Prince of Wales is a former rescue pilot with the RAF Search and Rescue Force, and he is the Honorary Air Commandant of RAF Coningsby.

The family later took to social media and posted, “A family day out at the @airtattoo  – in the wonderful British summer weather  Great exploring the C-17 and meeting @usairforce crew.” A second Tweet said, “And congratulations to the brilliant winners of the Road to RIAT competition on designing a sustainable aircraft for the future of the RAF.”
