Royal International Air Tattoo 2017

Royal International Air Tattoo 2017

Tracing its roots back to North Weald in the year of 1971, the first Air Tattoo saw just 100 aircraft from across Europe descend on the Essex found airfield – the idea of the show having been the brainchild of two Air Traffic Controllers. Fast-forward four and a half decades, adding a royal decree along with a permanent home, and the show has become the largest military airshow in the world. With a long and distinguished history of providing the first look at many a new type and display while celebrating key anniversaries in the aviation world, The Royal International Air Tattoo 2017 saw no less than 160,000 people pass through the gates of RAF Fairford for a look at the pinnacle of the UK airshow scene. Jamie Ewan and the AeroResource team were on hand for a look at this year’s weather driven edition.
