Aircraft at the Show
Aircraft are the stars of the Air Tattoo and here you'll find all the information about the aircraft and operators invited to participate in the 2017 show and those that have officially confirmed their attendance. We are unlikely to receive this information until the spring of 2017 so please be patient!
In 2016 we had more than 230 aircraft, from 37 air arms in 24 countries participate with 55 Official Military Delegations also in attendance. History was made on Friday 8 July when Lockheed Martin's F-35B Lightning II, the world's most advanced fighter jet, performed its first ever international display.
Other highlights included displays by the F-22 'Raptor', Polish MiG-29, RAF Typhoon and Chinook, French Rafale and the Turkish Air Force F-16 'Solo Turk'. Flypasts included a unique formation of the Red Arrows, an F-35B and two RAF Typhoons giving a glimpse of the future of the UK's defence capability.
At the 2016 Air Tattoo there were also some notable first and lasts, with the Croatian Air Force displaying making their debut in the UK with their display team Wings of Storm and the last ever display by the French Air Force 'Ramex Delta' Mirage 2000D duo.
