A Ukrainian news outlet called "Ltava" has posted a news story reporting that a pair of Su-27s and an Il-76MD will be attending RIAT 2017 - including a flying display which has been approved by RAF officials.

We await official confirmation as to whether this report is accurate or not.

B-17 Sally B confirms for the flying display helping to celebrate 70 years of the United States Air Force

Two RNLAF F-16s take up position in the static display and the Army Air Corp's Historic Aircraft Flight Beaver and Scout also join the line-up.

The BAE Systems collection is supplemented by a Gladiator 1 and deHavilland DH-9.

On Saturday 8 July 2017 the canopy of Berlin Express got shattered in a dive during Flying Legends Duxford.

before, during :shock: -after the shattering of the canopy .
A lot of loose pieces indeed!

It is now rather doubtful whether this "Razorback Mustang" will fly during RIAT Fairford.
