Royal International Air Tattoo 2018 confirmed aircraft thread

Hello everyone,

I decided to make this so that people here have an easy way to find out what aircraft are appearing at the Royal International Air Tattoo, taking place on the 13th-15th July 2018 . The airshow is the biggest military airshow in the world, and I’m sure that I am not the only one on the forum attending. I will update this thread every time a new aircraft is confirmed. Also, if you are attending the airshow, comment below and tell us!

The 2018 Air Tattoo will be a different event to that which you know - as we come together to celebrate one hundred years of the Royal Air Force!

RAF100 at the Air Tattoo, a special one off event, will include a flying display from the world famous Red Arrows and the RAFs newest F-35B Lightning! Friday will be a day not to miss in 2018. This special, full show day, will include a mass RAF flypast, a Royal Review of aircraft plus a lot more!

Were is the air tattoo.

It’s at RAF Fairford, Gloucestershire in the UK. It’s actually a US Air Force base which is frequently used by US bombers which are deployed there.
