Looking back at 2017

The 2017 Air Tattoo marked the 70th anniversary of the US Air Force and celebrated the 21st Century Partnerships that exist throughout the defence and aviation community. One way this was demonstrated was by the close relationship between the Air Tattoo, Royal Air Force and the US military, which enables us to stage this spectacular event at RAF Fairford each year.
