The 2018 Air Tattoo (13-15 July) has been selected by the Royal Air Force as the international celebration of the RAF’s Centenary! Air arms, aircraft and those who serve will come together from around the world for a global salute to the RAF.

RAF100 at the Air Tattoo will include a flying display from the world famous Red Arrows aerobatic team, the RAF's newest F-35B Lightning II and a RAF mass flypast (Friday only). In addition, aircraft from all around the world will join the RAF to celebrate its special anniversary. They include the Royal Canadian Air Force CF-18 Demo Team, the Romanian Air Force MiG-21 LanceR, the Ukrainian Air Force Su-27 Flanker, Eurofighter and F-16 demos from three different nations, to name just a few.
