Published: 04 Jun 2019 updated: 11 Jul 2019
We can now reveal more about the special 70th anniversary flypast being planned to showcase NATO's air power capabilities at the 2019 Air Tattoo. This will be the only official NATO flypast taking place at a UK airshow this summer.
Update 11 July
Adding to the NATO flypast is a French Air Force KC-135R tanker aircraft based at Istres in Southern France.
The full list now includes:
- RAF Typhoons x3
- NATO E-3 AWACS
- F-16s x3 (Belgium, Denmark)
- A400M (Germany)
- EF2000 (Germany)
- Tornado (Germany)
- KC-135R (France)
- F-15 x3 (USA)
Which aircraft are operating from RAF Fairford?
At the current time all aircraft will be operating from Fairford, apart from the French KC-135R from Istres and the F-15s from RAF Lakenheath. This is unusual for a flypast of this size and will be a fantastic sight to see!
The flypast will be taking place on Friday 19 and Saturday 20 July and, as Saturday is sold out, your only chance to watch the flypast is to book Friday tickets!
