Published: 13 Dec 2017   updated: 10 Jan 2018

We are very pleased to be able to announce the first participant for the 2018 Air Tattoo - all the way from Canada!

We have received official confirmation from the Royal Canadian Air Force that their CF-18 Hornet Demonstration Team will be flying at the Air Tattoo in July. The 2018 CF-18 Hornet team's theme will be the 60th anniversary of the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD), whilst simultaneously joining in the RAF100 celebrations at RAF Fairford. 

Come and witness this rarely seen aircraft in the sky at what promises to be the biggest Air Tattoo for many years. 

Saturday tickets are available with the Earlybird saving of £5, whilst Friday and Sunday are now both over 50% sold out of the Super Earlybird discount, which offers you £10 off full price.
