This week we're pleased to confirm participation of aircraft from the UK's Joint Aviation Command (previously known as Joint Helicopter Command).
In the flying display we'll be welcoming the Chinook performing a combat role demonstration on Saturday & Sunday,
including the carrying of an underslung load and deployment of troops.
We had previously been notified this will use a HC.6 airframe, however we're seeking information from the crew about which airframe they'll bring to RAF Fairford as we noted that a HC.5 airframe :!: was used for their appearance at RAF Cosford Air Show last weekend.

On static display we'll be welcoming Apache & Wildcat helicopters from the Army Air Corps,
both of which will be arriving on the Friday morning.
We will also have a rare appearance from a Puma HC2 helicopter, which will be parked near the RAF Experience.

Another fast jet for the static line-up, the Italian Air Force will send one of their Tornados!
We understand their aspiration is to bring a specially painted aircraft,
marking 50 years of the Tornado,
which will be a fantastic addition to our NATO 75th Anniversary static line-up.

The Reparto Sperimentale di Volo will also send their Piaggio P.180AM Avanti into RIAT for VIP transportation,
but we are not sure if it'll be available for public viewing over the weekend at this time.

Visitors on Friday will be treated to a special flying display appearance by the Embraer KC-390,
flown by the manufacturer, using their company demonstrator airframe.

This week we have added nine civilian aircraft to the static displays,
including a Auster J/5F Aiglet Trainer
which was previously used for Flight Test by Cranfield College of Aeronautics,
plus a host of aircraft used by RAF Flying Clubs across the country.

This week we have received the formal approval for the first of our United States Air Force aircraft which will be on static display at RIAT 2024.

The highlight for most aviation enthusiasts will likely be the final appearance of the KC-10 Extender :!: on static display,
which will be supporting the deployment of two F-16 Fighting Falcons from the 93rd Fighter Squadron ""Makos"" to join our Viper Line.

Other USAF 'heavies' include the C-17 and KC-46, both of which are planned to be open for public to view onboard during the show.

Coming from RAF Mildenhall we have a KC-135, MC-130J and RC-135,
the latter of which we haven't see at RIAT for a number of years.

In addition we've also got a C-21 coming from Ramstein Air Base.

The majority of these US DOD aircraft will be parked at the western end of the airfield so only viewable on Saturday & Sunday.

We have a few more American aircraft expected, pending final paperwork approvals, so hope to provide a further update in the coming weeks.
Coming from The Fighter Collection at Duxford,
we've got a Supermarine Spitfire Vb wearing the colours of 402 Squadron RCAF,
which will be flying on Saturday & Sunday.

The plan for this aircraft is to perform a 'heritage formation' alongside the CF-188 Hornet.

Also this week we add three aircraft to the static displays, provided by their manufacturers.

The RAF RC-135W will be flying only (Friday).
The U-2 will be flying on Friday and afterwards on the static. It will probably be a U-2S.
Cancelled are the BBMF spitfire and the hurricane. Still hoping the Lancaster might fly….

FRIAT Stand Location 2025

"We are contacting you today to inform you of some important changes that are being implemented to the FRIAT offering for RIAT25 and beyond. Regrettably, these changes are unavoidable. However, as sincerely valued customers we wanted to be open and honest with you, as we value your support and passion for our event.

Unfortunately, in achieving compliance with updated airfield safeguarding criteria at RAF Fairford, the current location for the FRIAT grandstand is no longer possible and will need to be relocated for RIAT25.

The final #TakeoffThursday for RIAT 2024!

Starting off with the exciting last minute surprise
that the Hellenic Air Force, in addition to their previously announced F-16s,
will now also be sending a pair of F-4 Phantoms to RIAT 2024! :!:

These jets will be arriving on Friday afternoon and will then be on static display alongside other NATO fighter aircraft at the western end of the showground on Saturday & Sunday... Phabulous!

In addition to the Black Cat pair in the flying display,
then Royal Navy will now also be sending an additional Wildcat helicopter for static display.
This will be parked as a showcase item for Leonardo at the centre of the showground, and we expect it will have a fit of dummy weapons.

Two more static display additions come from the United States Air Force in Europe, with a pair of F-16s from Spangdahlem and C-130 from Ramstein.

We will also have a Lynx AH7 :)
from Historic Helicopters
with us over the show weekend, which we'll be using as an aerial photography platform.

This week we had an update from the Finnish Air Force;
they plan to bring Hawk Mk.66 aircraft
to RIAT (rather than the previously planned Mk.51 aircraft).

Whilst this means the display of the Midnight Hawks won't have smokeswinders,
these airframes are much rarer so we expect the news will be welcomed by aviation enthusiasts.

Finally this week, we have been notified by the Royal Danish Air Force that their Challenger is no longer able to attend RIAT 2024.

Please note, the participation list is now 'final'
but there many be some unscheduled updates (such as cancellations or changes)
made ad-hoc during the show week. We hope you enjoy RIAT 2024!
