RIAT 2017

We are fast approaching this year’s Royal International Air Tattoo, held between 14-16 July at RAF Fairford. Tickets for the Saturday have already sold out, showing the appetite for the Cotswolds event continues to prove extremely popular with families and aviation enthusiasts alike.

We often get asked about the likelihood of aircraft routing through the Mach Loop on their way to/from RIAT, with the the same adage always applying – definitely maybe!

If you are attending the airshow, you could always chat to the aircrews at RIAT itself, who generally speaking, are happy to give a heads-up on whether they intend to do the loop or the lakes on their way home.

Either way, RIAT continues to be a highlight of the UK Military aviation calendar each year, largely due to its ability to lure in some of the military aviation worlds finest aircraft in numbers.

  1. Hi,

    Nice site, very useful for ML first-timers like myself.

    Me and a buddy of mine are planning a two-day visit on the Monday and Tuesday after RIAT, and I have a question you can probably help me with:
    How strictly do they stick to the time slots announced in advance. For instance, if the schedule says 11:00-13:00 on the given day, how early should we arrive, and when do usually flying activities cease in the afternoon?

    Thanks in advance!
