Aircraft at The Royal International Air Tattoo 2020

One of the world’s greatest airshows, The Royal International Air Tattoo hosted 245 aircraft from 39 air arms representing 25 nations, in 2019 – taking over RAF Fairford for three days of flying entertainment, ideal for both aviation enthusiasts and families.

The 2020 show will include the chance to see impressive aircraft from around the world, with confirmations to begin in the new year.

Saturday and Sunday will also feature a spectacular seven-hour flying display, as well as at least four hours on Friday, featuring top guns from around the world.

Entertainment at Royal International Air Tattoo 2020

With plenty going on in the skies, there’s a whole host of entertainment and activities to
explore on the ground.

The Techno Zone will offer a series of engaging and interactive exhibits where visitors can
learn all about the fascinating space technology developments and how it’s being used to
combat threats.

Visitors can also learn about the impressive equipment and current operations at
the RAF Experience. Whereas the Vintage Village takes visitors back to the 1940s
complete with vintage aircraft and cars as well as fashion.

With under 18s gaining free entry to the Air Tattoo when accompanying an adult, The Activity Zone is a must visit for families. From exciting demonstrations to a party skills workshop, there’s something for little ones to enjoy.
