Yeovilton Air Day 2017 date confirmed

Tickets for the annual Royal Naval Air Station (RNAS) Yeovilton International Air Day in Somerset go on sale on November 1.

About 40,000 visitors are expected at the popular ‘Fly Navy’ air show on July 8, 2017, which will showcase the Royal Navy’s Fleet Air Arm, its current capabilities and historic accomplishments.

Next year’s show marks the 70th anniversary of the event.

More than five hours of flying displays and an extensive static display will feature historic naval aircraft and their modern day counterparts.

UK and foreign military formation and solo display teams have also been invited to participate.

Alongside the flying display, there will be ground attractions, from engineering fairs to the latest defence technology exhibitions, trade stalls, fairground rides and helicopter pleasure flights.
