The Royal International Air Tattoo (RIAT) is a very large Air show containing hundreds of modern military aircraft in the static line-up and air display from many different countries around the world.
This Airshow is usually held at RAF Fairford in Gloucestershire which is a large base used infrequently by USAF deployments which makes it an ideal venue for such a large Airshow.
RIAT will have a full three days of airshows with over 7 hours of flying on Friday, Saturday and Sunday in 2018. You can also view the aircraft on arrival days and departure day.

Not only do visitors to the Air Tattoo experience amazing aviation in the skies, there is also a whole host of entertainment on the ground. There is something for everyone at the 2018 show, from static aircraft located throughout the showground to interactive activities and the most advanced technologies that are demonstrated in the Techno Zone, visitors can also take a trip back in time to the 1940s in the Vintage Village.
Techno Zone - The Techno Zone has aviation at its heart and is where the STEM subjects; science, technology, engineering and maths, are brought to life and showcased with cutting edge exhibits and interactive activities designed to engage and inspire future engineers. More information about the Techno Zone at the 2018 Air Tattoo will be available soon.
RAF Village - The Royal International Air Tattoo's RAF Village is a showcase for the 21st Century Royal Air Force. Celebrating its 100th year, the RAF will be out in force to showcase everything from air transport operations, medical service and RAF sport.
Vintage Village - Inside the themed marquee will be packed a programme of wonderful entertainment, including professional singers, dancing, and DJ. The style is, of course, a mix of wartime favourites and tunes from a bygone era, spiced with some foot stomping jumping and jiving.
Autodrome - Where Top Gear meets Top Gun and petrol heads with a penchant for two and four wheels get a real treat. The Autodrome will join us again in 2018 and offer an array of automobile eye candy.
Activity Zone The Activity Zone offers a great variety of family entertainment. Watch some fun-filled demonstrations and participate in a whole host of interesting 'have a go' attractions.
There are three Service Stations which contain catering, marquee with seating, visitor information, free WiFi, cash points, picnic benches/seating, and toilets. There will also be plenty of trade stands as usual at RIAT 2018.
