Aircraft at the Show

Aircraft are the stars of the Air Tattoo and soon you'll find all the information about the aircraft and operators invited to participate in the 2018 show.

In 2017, 246 aircraft from 32 air arms in 26 countries participated with 63 Official Military Delegations also in attendance. On Sunday 16, visitors were treated to a surprise flypast by a B-2 Spirit stealth bomber, escorted by two F-15 fighters. 

You can find the aircraft that attended the Air Tattoo in 2017 and previous years in our Looking Back section.

Our Frequently Asked Questions page provides further information about aircraft at the Air Tattoo. Find out more about the process for inviting participants
