Any Idea if it's a static or flying fighter jet?
322 Squadron will bring their F-16 75th Anniversary jet together with another F-16 to Fairford on static display. That is the plan, if everything goes well, ofcourse.. The info came from their own Facebookpage "PR 322 Squadron".

There wont be any RAF100 flypast over RIAT but only in the London area at 10 July??

Seems everybody misinterpreted "a Royal Review of aircraft" on Friday for a parade; or is that a fly-by of some sort too?

We specially took a Friday off to go there on that date for this.... :(

Erwin, there is a ‘RAF100’ flypast on all three days of RIAT, but they won’t involve 100 aircraft in total like the one in the 10th July will. Friday should see something in the region of 50 aircraft with a lesser number involved in the Saturday and Sunday.

From the RIAT website per 6 May 2018:
A dramatic flypast featuring more than 50 aircraft from the Royal Air Force will provide a stunning aerial set piece to launch RAF centenary celebrations at this summer's Royal International Air Tattoo.
The massed flypast, which takes place at the Air Tattoo at RAF Fairford on Friday, July 13, will see many of the RAF's operational aircraft accompanied by the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight (BBMF) flying in formation above the crowds at the airshow.
For the benefit of Mr. Kite, there will be a show tonight on trampoline
