From 14-16 July, Royal International Air Tattoo (RIAT 2023) at RAF Fairford will be buzzing with excited visitors and the Cotswolds will echo once again with the thrilling sights and sounds of several hundred aircraft of all shapes and sizes, from all eras and countries of the world at this unique adrenalin-fuelled occasion.
Saudi Arabia’s Falcons Aerobatic Team of the Royal Air Force arrived Saturday in the United Kingdom to participate in the Royal International Air Tattoo (RIAT).
The Saudi Falcons will participate in the acrobatics air show and with the air-to-air refueling tanker (MRTT) for the ground shows, the Saudi Press Agency (SPA) reported.
Reputed among the world’s most prestigious air shows, RIAT will see the participation of a group of acrobatic teams from all over the world with various aircraft types, including fighter jets, bombers, helicopters and transport planes.
“Our aspiration for RIAT 2023 is to deliver an eclectic mix of aircraft on both flying and static displays, focusing on our various themes. This aircraft participation list will be updated each Thursday, once written confirmation of aircraft participation has been received from the aircraft operator,” the shows website said.
“The operational theme for this year’s Air Tattoo is SKYTANKER23, which will highlight the vital role of air-to-air refuelling in modern military aviation. We aim to display the history of air-to-air refuelling from humble beginnings in 1923, evolving through the last century, to the modern aircraft which we see in service around the world today.”
