Star flies in to support air tattoo

The world's biggest military airshow has been given some celebrity backing.

Only Fools and horses star Sir David Jason flew into RAF Fairford to help promote this year's Royal International Air Tattoo.

The actor was flown in on a Chinnock helicopter before being driven to the airfield in his famous three wheeled van!

David is an Honorary Vice Patron of the airshow and a keen supporter of the Royal Air Force Charitable Trust.

Heart caught up with Sir David after he touched down to find out why he was such a fan of the event:
