We are currently receiving a high volume of enquiries about the Air Tattoo. We would be grateful is you could view our Frequently Asked Questions and Answers here before contacting us. If your question is with regard to the weather please see the statement below.

"Following the unfortunate need to cancel the 2008 Air Tattoo when the United Kingdom suffered a continuous period of rainfall over the preceding months, significant work was undertaken to make the showground and car parking arrangements for subsequent events at Fairford resilient in the face of such conditions. Had these been in place in 2008 the Air Tattoo would have taken place. These arrangements remain for all Air Tattoos staged at RAF Fairford. We have no intention of cancelling the event in 2012."
