The Royal International Air Tattoo (RIAT) is a very large military 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 three days of air displays on Friday (4 hours), Saturday and Sunday (both 7.5 hours) in 2019. You can also view the aircraft on arrival days and departure day.
