Latest update - 21st April 2022

Firstly, confirmation of another helicopter for the flying display programme!
The Finnish Army make a welcome return to Fairford with their NH90 Tactical Transport Helicopter.

We will be asking if they are able send one of the airframes which has been painted in their experimental snow camouflage pattern,
rather than their standard colours.

Great news from Lithuania,
as they will bring two interesting aircraft for static display at RIAT 2022!

We're excited to see their AS365 Dauphin for the first time,
alongside their LET-410 transport aircraft
which will make a welcome return after a lengthy hiatus.

Behind the scenes we continue discussions with a number of European Air Forces to establish what aircraft they may be able to send to RIAT 2022, with exciting possibilities for both the flying and static displays being discussed.

We are also in discussion with Joint Helicopter Command regarding aircraft participation at RIAT 2022,
with a number of airframes provisionally allocated to us, including the Chinook Display.

However, the formal ratification is still in process and we will bring you confirmations as soon as possible.

Finally, we have added 12 civilian aircraft to our static display line-up, the majority of which are ex-military training aircraft.

Latest update - 28th April 2022

We have now received official confirmation from the
Hungarian Air Force
on the aircraft they will send to RIAT, with
Gripens & Hinds inbound to RAF Fairford in July!

We're also very pleased both types will be demonstrated in the flying display programme with another example available for closer inspection in the static aircraft displays.


After a lengthy absence, we're pleased to be welcoming Brazil back to the Air Tattoo!
They will participate on static display with the first visit of their
new Embraer KC-390 transport aircraft,
bringing some Latin American influence to this year's event.


The first additions to the static displays at RIAT 2022 from the Royal Air Force come from RAF Shawbury,
with examples of
their Juno & Jupiter.

We hope to be able to confirm more Royal Air Force aircraft in the coming weeks
to complement the already announced display assets,
as we are in positive discussions with a number of squadrons.


Recent weeks have been extremely busy for the Air Operations Team,
with continued engagement with the United States Air Force
regarding their aircraft availability
and encouraging participation as part of our USAF 75th Anniversary celebrations.

In addition, staff from DBH recently attended the British Air Display Association event at Duxford.


Finally, Pilatus will bring examples of the PC-24 light business jet and new PC-7 MKX training aircraft
which will both be located in our showcase static display
areas and available to view all three days.

The German Air Force have confirmed their participation at RIAT 2022, bringing the total number of aircraft from the German miliary committed to RIAT 2022 up to 11 aircraft, which includes fighters, transport aircraft and helicopters!

We're particularly pleased to be welcoming their CH-53G helicopter back to RAF Fairford, which we haven't seen for over a decade.


Following our continued discussions with the Romanian Air Force,
we're pleased to announce they plan to send one of their Antonov An-30 to RIAT. :!:

The reconnaissance aircraft, known by it's NATO reporting name of 'Clank', will likely be one of the highlights of the static displays for aviation enthusiasts in July.

As part of our focus on the Queen's Platinum Jubilee, we will be welcoming a pair of helicopters types for static display with royal connections.

Firstly a Wessex, as used by the Queen's Flight during the 1970s and 1980s,

France!
As part of our training theme, we're pleased to be welcoming the
"Mustang X-Ray Demo Team" to RIAT,

We'll be welcoming one of their Persuader maritime patrol aircraft,
based on the popular CASA 295, for static display in July.


We continue to work with the Royal Air Force to confirm additional participation at RIAT 2022 and this week we can confirm the addition of nine airframes to the static aircraft displays.

We now have all aircraft types operated by 22 Group on static display at RIAT 2022 as part of our Training Theme, some of which will be exhibited in the Ascent Showcase, others located near the RAF Experience.



Finally for this week, an iconic American warbird joins our growing USAF 75th Anniversary static displays,
with P-51D Mustang "Frances Dell" flying over from Germany for RIAT 2022.
In addition, we continue to work with our friends in the United States Air Force and hope to be able to announce the participation of the modern USAF assets we're expecting join the static displays soon...

S. Korea's Black Eagles aerobatic team to perform in British air shows in July

Defense 10:43 May 16, 2022

SEOUL, May 16 (Yonhap) -- The South Korean Air Force's aerobatic flight team
plans to join three international air shows in Britain in July 2022,
Seoul officials said Monday, marking its first visit to the European nation in 10 years.

The Black Eagles team is set to participate in the
Southport Air Show,
Royal International Air Tattoo, and
Farnborough Airshow from July 9-22,
as part of military diplomacy to promote South Korean-made aircraft.


The team last attended a British show in 2012.
Later, it joined flight events in Singapore and Malaysia but did not travel to Britain
due largely to geographical distance, according to the officials.

The team of 12 pilots will fly eight T-50B supersonic trainer jets
to stage various performances, including its trademark show of drawing with smoke tails the taegeuk mark,
a signature symbol of South Korea's national flag.

A joint flight with its British counterpart, the Red Arrows,
has also been arranged to highlight the two countries' friendship, the Air Force said.

Next month, the Air Force plans to disassemble nine T-50B jets,
including a spare, and transport them to Britain by air.

South Korea will also utilize three C-130 transport aircraft to ship other pieces of equipment.

Following its trip to Britain, the team plans to visit 13 other countries,
including Poland, Slovakia, Egypt and the Philippines,
to promote South Korean military assets,
such as the FA-50 light attack aircraft.

The squad's flight distance before its return home is estimated to be 20,000 kilometers, the Air Force said.

Latest update - 19th May 2022

First up this week, we're pleased to announce the 48th Fighter Wing
will be supporting this year's Air Tattoo in style.

As well as a Strike Eagle from each squadron, this will be the first time seeing their new Lightnings on static display at RIAT.

In addition, we are discussions with a number of other United States Air Force units who hope to participate at RIAT 2022,
with the approvals process ongoing.


The Irish Air Corps celebrates their Centenary this year,
and to mark the occasion will be sending a fourship display of their Pilatus PC-9M aircraft :!: to perform in the flying display,
in a reformation of their Silver Swallows Display Team.
We're pleased to welcome them to RAF Fairford, with their participation also very appropriate for our training theme.


Despite the Polish Armed Forces being at extremely high alert and all of their aircraft fleets operating at high intensity :( ,
we are honoured that they are still keen to participate at RIAT.

They will be sending an M28 Bryza for static display, joining our growing selection of maritime patrol aircraft on static display at the show.


Finally this week, additional civilian operated aircraft join the static displays.

Hawker Hunter Aviation will bring their Hunter T72
for its first RIAT appearance and
Embraer their Super Tucano for exhibition as a showcase display.

We're delighted to be able to confirm a large contingent of aircraft from the Italian Air Force
will be heading to RIAT 2022!

The Frecce Tricolori are always one of the highlights of the RIAT flying display,
and they will be joined by a host of solo displays from the Reparto Sperimentale di Volo.

In addition, we'll be welcoming a number of aircraft for static display,
highlight of which will be a final appearance of the AMX :!:
before it's retirement from service... Viva Italia!


Aircraft from RAF Mildenhall join the USAF 75th Anniversary celebrations at RIAT 2022!
The 352nd Special Operations Wing will exhibit their MC-130J & CV-22B on static display,
accompanied by their specailist vehicles and equipment.
We will also have the legendary KC-135 Stratotanker on static display.


Work continues behind the scenes on the flying display scheduling, and static display parking plan.
We are in a very strong position at this stage,
with the static displays now looking extremely full with more aircraft to be announced in the coming weeks
once the final approvals are in place for their participation.
In addition, we are planning to extend the duration of the flying display due to the number of notified participants!


We're pleased that our friends from the RAF Microlight Flying Association, Halton Aero Club and RAF Waddington Flying Club
will all be returning to RIAT,
with their aircraft joining the static displays as part of our Training theme.


Sadly, we have been notified this week that the Finnish Army are no longer able to attend RIAT 2022. :(
In addition, two civilian aircraft have also withdrawn from the static

Latest update - 2nd June 2022



As the Platinum Jubilee celebrations begin, we're pleased to be able to confirm more Royal Air Force aircraft for the static displays at RIAT 2022!

We will be welcoming the new Poseidon maritime patrol aircraft
to the show for the first time to join the extensive static displays,

plus Hercules, Atlas & Typhoons.
Weekend visitors will also be treated to a number of flypasts from the F-35B Lightning II.


Continuing our celebration of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee, we're delighted that
the Royal New Zealand Air Force will be bringing their Boeing 757
to RIAT 2022.

Visitors should be prepared to be amazed by the agility of this airliner when it performs in the flying display!

Continuing the Platinum Jubilee theme, we're also expecting aircraft from the
Royal Canadian Air Force
to join our static displays,
which will be added to the confirmed aircraft list in the coming weeks once final approvals are in place.


We can now confirm that the iconic
U-2 Dragon Lady
is joining the USAF 75th Anniversary line-up, on static display for all three days of RIAT 2022.

Secondly, we'll be welcoming the USAF's newest tanker,
the KC-46,
for static display for the first time at the Air Tattoo.

We continue work with our friends across the United States Air Force to see how we can celebrate their 75th Anniversary in the air at RIAT 2022, with more news expected soon...


The Air Operations Department were over the moon to receive confirmation from
Top Aces, who will be sending one of their legendary A-4 Skyhawks
for static display!

This participation is very appropriate as part of our 'Training the Next Generation Air Force' theme at RIAT 2022,
which includes the use of Red-Air contractor aircraft to provide threat replication for modern aircrew training.


Finally this week, in a change to previously announced plans, the Royal Navy Wildcat will now be on static :( display at RIAT 2022,
and not performing in the flying display programme.

Latest update - 9th June 2022



This week we can confirm our first USAF aircraft for the flying display,
with the return of the CV-22B Osprey from RAF Mildenhall!

In addition, we'll be welcoming an F-16 from Aviano Air Base for static display
for the first time in many years.

We're still in discussions with other USAF units about their planned participation, w
ith more aircraft to be announced in the coming weeks to join the already strong line-up of American Airpower at RIAT 2022.

Our loyal supporters from the
Royal Netherlands Air Force have committed a pair of their F-16 Fighting Falcons
and one of their NH90 NATO Frigate Helicopters

to attend RIAT 2022 to join our extensive static displays.

Interesting Fact: the RNLAF are the only Air Arm to have sent an aircraft to every single Air Tattoo since 1971!

Despite their high operational tempo, the Czech Air Force have confirmed this week they will bolster their previously announced participation with the addition of an L-159 ALCA for static display.

Due to emerging engineering issues, the RNZAF have sadly been forced to withdraw their Boeing 757 from the event. :(

Likewise, the RAF Valley are only able to send one Hawk aircraft for static display, rather than the planned pair.

Finally, the Lithuanian Air Force have informed us their LET-410 is sadly no longer able to attend RIAT 2022,
however they will instead send their C-27J Spartan to replace it!

Several interesting civilian aircraft can now been confirmed for the RIAT 2022 static display.

Notably, Airbus Helicopter's new H175M will be on display in the showcase area
and we'll be welcoming our first electric aircraft to RIAT in the form of the Pipistrel Velis Electro!


Finally this week, a special treat for Friday visitors, as the Rolls-Royce Spitfire will be performing in the Friday Flying Display programme.

We are unable to offer a display slot over the weekend to the Spitfire, or any other civilian aircraft,
as we are oversuscribed with military participation and are struggling to fit it all in the 8 hour flying display programme!

Rolls-Royce Heritage Flight will also send their P-51D Mustang to join the USAF 75th Anniversary static display line-up over the weekend.

With a month to go until the Air Tattoo, this week has been particularly busy in the Air Operations Office, with our Air Traffic Control team in for their Training Days, our "Longest Day" for aircraft arrival slot planning, and today our Emergency Services 'Table Top' Exercises taking place.


We can now announce the participation of
Joint Helicopter Command assets at RIAT 2022;

with the Chinook Display Team,
a pair of Pumas,
Commando Wildcat and
Commando Merlin all due to attend.

We have put in a special request for one the Pumas to be XW224,
which is specially painted to mark 50 years of Puma operations.

Sadly the Army Air Corps cannot provide any aircraft for the show.
We can now confirm the types of aircraft the Royal Canadian Air Force will send to this year's show as part of our Platinum Juiblee celebrations!

437 Squadron will return with their
CC-130J Hercules aircraft and
427 Squadron will participate with their
CC-150 Polaris, which will be the first time in two decades we've seen the aircraft type at RIAT!

The Swedes are coming!
We're appreciative to SAAB for supporting the Swedish Air Force Historic Flight to deploy a number of their jets to join the RIAT 2022 static displays.

Whilst UK CAA display regulations :( mean they cannot perform in the flying display at RIAT,
we're pleased to be able to welcome these rare cold war jets to the Air Tattoo,
all of them being twin-seat variants appropriate for our training theme.

Another welcome addition to our static display line-up comes from the
Qatar Emiri Air Force, who will be sending one of their new
Hawk training jets, currently based at RAF Leeming.

Finally this week, we've added a number of support aircraft to the participation list.

Although most of them won't be present over the public days, enthusiasts attending on the arrivals and departures day will see them delivering support equipment and personnel to RAF Fairford.

Latest update - 23th June 2022

As our colleagues in Ground Operations begin the main efforts for the RIAT 2022 Site Build this week, Air Operations continues to be a hive of activity to ensure arrangements are in place for the 280 aircraft descending on RAF Fairford next month.

Brilliant news from
US Global Strike Command,
as they commit a pair of B-52 bombers to RIAT 2022!

We will have one example in the static display (to be parked alongside the B-17)
and another example which will launch :!: from Fairford on Saturday & Sunday to perform a flypast :!:
during the display, a very welcome addition to our USAF 75th Anniversary celebrations.

Supporting the deployment of their Silver Swallows Display Team, will be one of the Irish Air Corps's new Pilatus PC-12 aircraft.

The aircraft is planned to remain at RAF Fairford for static display over the weekend, with the ambition for it to registration '280' which is painted in special colours to mark the Irish Air Corps Centenary.

The US Navy
joins RIAT 2022: They will participate with a Poseidon on static display, coming from their detachment at NAS Sigonella.

We did specifically explore the potential attendance of the E/A-18G Growlers :( currently deployed in Europe,
however their operational tempo sadly prohibits their attendance to the Air Tattoo.

Continuing the Naval theme... the French Navy
have committed one of their Xingu training aircraft to the static display,
which is very appropriate for our training theme.

Multiple other civilian aircraft have been added to the static display line-up this week,
including a contingent from the
'Fly Fano Team' from Italy,
helicopters from the Gazelle Squadron and
Textron Aviation demonstrators.

Finally, we can now announce that
2Excel Aviation will perform a special flypast on the Friday only, with the four Extra 300 aircraft from The Blades in formation with their Boeing 727.
The Boeing 727 will then land ready to be on static display over the weekend. The Blades will not be performing a flying display.

Sadly, as the show approaches, we've had a couple more aircraft cancellations,
with Martin Baker unfortunately no longer able to send their Meteor, :(
as a priority tasking for the Slovenian LET-410 meaning it can no longer make the show.
