First RIAT 2022 Aircraft Announcement

“We are very pleased to receive confirmation from the Royal Danish Air Force that as part of our operational theme focusing on training aircraft, they will send their Baby Blue Display Team to RIAT for the first time. The last time we saw one of their T-17 Supporter aircraft at RAF Fairford was back at RIAT 2010, so their appearance is warmly welcomed.

We can also confirm the first aircraft which will form part of our unique static display which will celebrate the United States Air Force’s 75th Anniversary, with iconic American warbirds parked alongside their modern-day counterparts. Both B-17G Flying Fortress “Sally B” and P-47D Thunderbolt “Nellie” will form part of this static display at RIAT 2022.

We are in communication with our friends from the Austrian Air Force, Hungarian Air Force & German Army who have all indicated their intent to send aircraft to participate in the flying display at RIAT 2022. Discussions continue with formal confirmations expected in the coming weeks.”
