Showground Attractions

Not only do visitors to the Air Tattoo experience amazing aviation in the skies, there is also a whole host of entertainment on the ground. RAF100 at the Air Tattoo will feature a huge variety of things to see and do, including a huge selection of static aircraft to see as well as a Royal Review of RAF Aircraft. 

Our regular zones will also be open, including;

Techno Zone - With aviation at its heart, science, technology, maths and engineering (STEM) are brought to life with cutting-edge exhibits and hands-on activities to engage and inspire young minds. The Techno Zone is sponsored by Lockheed Martin and supported by the RAF Charitable Trust.

RAF Experience - Bigger than ever to mark the RAF Centenary, the RAF Experience will showcase the RAF today - by the men and women who protect the UK airspace 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. Learn about current operations, the specialised equipment used and the ways in which members of the Regular and Reserve force come together to deliver effective, 21st century airpower capability.

Vintage Village - Take a step back in time and experiencing the 1940s through vintage aircraft, cars, and fashion as musical hall entertainers transport visitors to a bygone era. 

Autodrome - Our fantastic display of rare and beautifully maintained cars.
