A handful of cancellations in the form of the Czech L-159, French Alpha Jets and Royal Navy Avenger too. I suppose we've done pretty well to get to this point without having any cancellations.

It's on the RIAT website.
Today we are pleased to confirm a large number of static aircraft from Denmark, the Netherlands and Norway.
The Royal Netherlands Air Force has confirmed the C-130H, F-16 AM/BM, CH-47D Chinook, Do-228 and an AH-64D Apache.
Also in attendance from the Royal Norwegian Air Force is the fantastic F-16.
The Royal Danish Air Force has confirmed that the F-16 Fighting Falcon and the C-130J will be on static display at this year's Air Tattoo.

I have an idea lets have a RIAT without any static aircraft would that make you happy ? Sick to the back teeth of "Enthusiasts" complaining about items being on static only. Some of us enjoy arrivals and walking around looking at rare different aircraft from around the world.

Wind your neck in mate, I'm NOT moaning that they are on static, I am saying it is a bummer that they are on static because it would be nice to see them fly as well. HOWEVER, as I stated, I am happy to see them nonetheless. Why don't you read before you comment? :whistle:

The early bird ticket prices have gone so pleased to see the updates flowing. I reckon there's over 150 planes confirmed now and more to come.

Looking like a most excellent air show. Can't wait to be part of it :clap:

RAF aircraft from across the country will descend on the Air Tattoo for the official international celebration of RAF100! Today we confirm 23 more aircraft, from the smallest Grob Viking to the huge Voyager tanker/transporter! Highlights include the RC-135W, two Phenom 100 multi engine trainers as well as Tornados and Typhoons.
be surprised if the RC135 turns up!!
