Fairford 2016

Report of a group visit to the Royal International Air Tattoo 2016 at RAF Fairford in July 2016. We will remember this special edition for the first visit of US and RAF F-35s to Europe.

Also in 2016 4Aviation travelled to the Royal International Air Tattoo (RIAT) op RAF Fairford again. Just like in 2014 there was an option this year to combine the visit to the show with the Flying Legends show at Duxford. The large number of interesting participants on the list of confirmations (F-35s, F-22s, Hellenic F-4s, etc.) led to a small column of five buses that headed for Calais (before crossing the Channel to Dover) on Friday 8 July.
