The annual Royal Naval Air Station (RNAS) Yeovilton International Air Day at Somerset, England, is back. Scheduled to be held on 7th July 2018, it will feature a spectacular five-hour flying display -besides an array of ground attractions - from engineering fairs to the latest defence technology exhibitions, simulators, fairground rides and helicopter pleasure flights.
After last year’s remarkable performance, the Czech Air Force has confirmed their participation at the event for this year as well. They will return with the JAS 39C Gripen that won the title of ‘Best Fixed Wing Display’ last year.
The RNAS Yeovilton International Air Day is expected to have up to 40,000 visitors. The event will include demonstration of the Maritime Capability and Air Power of not only the Royal Navy, but also the British Army and the Royal Air Force, which are celebrating their centenary year. The British Armed Forces’ NATO and European allies will participate too. The Air Day will have both static and flying displays from some of the world’s most skilled pilots and their aircrafts.
