U.S. military personnel from bases in Europe and the United States will participate in this year’s Royal International Air Tattoo July 19-21, 2019, at Royal Air Force Fairford, England.

U.S. participation in RIAT highlights the strength of the U.S. commitment to NATO, our ironclad alliance with the U.K. and demonstrates our interoperability with allies and partners from around the world.

Various U.S. military aircraft and equipment are scheduled to be on display, including the U.S. Air Force’s B-52 Stratofortress, F-16 Viper Demonstration Team, C-17 Globemaster III, CV-22 Osprey, MC-130J Commando II, F-15E Strike Eagle, KC-135 Stratotanker, and the U.S. Navy’s P-8A Poseidon. 

The presence of these aircraft will also commemorate the 70th Anniversary of NATO and the enduring alliance this represents.
