The Royal International Air Tattoo 2020

July 17 - July 19

The Royal International Air Tattoo 2019 

The Air Tattoo returns next summer from 19-21 July 2019 at RAF Fairford in Gloucestershire to celebrate 70 years of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO). Tickets on sale from Autumn 2018.

THE WORLD’S GREATEST AIRSHOW

RAFCTE is best known for staging the world’s largest military airshow – The Royal International Air Tattoo – each year at RAF Fairford in Gloucestershire. The origins of the Royal International Air Tattoo stretch back to an airshow first held at North Weald Airfield in 1971. Inspired by two air traffic controllers, Paul Bowen and Tim Prince, this modest event, organised wholly by volunteers, was originally held in support of the Royal Air Forces Association. Over the years this volunteer force has grown into an army, more than 3,500-strong, who bring with them a wealth of aviation and event-management experience that has helped the Air Tattoo grow into the enormous event it is today.

Few events can rival the intensity, drama and spectacle on offer at the world’s greatest airshow. The Air Tattoo, one of the UK’s premier outdoor events, returns this summer with an extravaganza of entertainment for all the family. Alongside the thrilling flying action, visitors will be treated to non-stop entertainment on the ground – so whether a wide-eyed first timer for a seasoned airshow veteran, the experience is breathtaking.
