RIAT 2011 - England - July 2011




The Royal International Air Tattoo (RIAT) is the world's biggest military air show, held every year in July, usually at RAF Fairford in Gloucestershire, United Kingdom in support of The Royal Air Force Charitable Trust. The show typically attracts a total of 150,000 to 160,000 spectators over the weekend. In 2003 the Guinness World Records recognized RIAT as the world's largest ever military airshow, with 535 aircraft attending.

The event has had a number of air show firsts, including the first display and landing of the stealthy B-2A Spirit bomber outside the United States of America during the 1997 "50 Years of the USAF" event and in 2008 the first landing of the Lockheed F-22 Raptor in Europe.

The Air Tattoo celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2011.
