The most famous airshow in Europe celebrates 70 years of the USAF with the presence of Thunderbirds, F-22 Raptor and much more.

Royal International Air Tattoo RIAT
USAF F-22 Demo Team will fly to RIAT 17

The Royal International Air Tattoo - RIAT, one of the UK's premier outdoor events, returns this summer (14, 15, 16 July 2017) with a thrilling 7.5 hour flying display (4 hours on Friday).

The 2017 Air Tattoo will mark the 70th anniversary of the US Air Force and will also celebrate the 21st Century Partnerships that exist throughout the defence and aviation community. One way this is demonstrated is by the close relationship between the Air Tattoo, Royal Air Force and the US military, which enables the organiziation to stage this spectacular event at RAF Fairford each year.

The US Air Force will send to Fairford its spectacular Thunderbirds aerobatic team and F-22 Raptor Demo Team to mark the occasion of the USAF 70th anniversary.
