A beautiful vintage machine in the RIAT 2014 static park will be Carlo Ferrari's Beech G18S. The classic Beech 18 dates from 1937, when the prototype first flew, and achieved great success both as a civil transport and in military roles including light transport and training. Named as the Expediter, it was used extensively by both the RAF and Fleet Air Arm. Not until 1970, remarkably, did the production run end. The G18S variant attending the Air Tattoo is owned by Carlo Ferrari from Switzerland, and appears in a very highly-polished natural metal finish.

“It was an epic spectacle, as magical as anything you've ever seen in the West End, and as loud as anything you've ever heard at Knebworth.”

Jeremy Clarkson, Television Presenter

“All the thrills, excitement and noise of a Grand Prix, but in the air!”

Jenson Button, Former Formula 1 Racing Driver

Buzz Aldrin, Apollo 11 Astronaut
