RNAS Yeovilton International Air Day

One of the Southwest’s largest one day events, will offer an action-packed day out for all the family with thrilling flying displays and plenty to see and do on the ground.

RNAS Yeovilton International Air Day

 

The annual Royal Naval Air Station (RNAS) Yeovilton International Air Day in Somerset will take place on Saturday 8 July. Planning is well under way for this popular ‘Fly Navy’ airshow which will showcase the Royal Navy’s Fleet Air Arm, its current capabilities and historic accomplishments.

 

2017 is set to be an exciting year for RNAS Yeovilton and the Fleet Air Arm as the first Royal Navy aircraft is set to touch down on the deck of HMS Queen Elizabeth, as she sets sail to begin sea trials. Operational evaluation and testing of the F-35B Lightning multirole fighter continues apace whilst aircraft maintainers and handlers are busily getting accustomed to the new type.

 

The Wildcat helicopter takes over as the wings of front-line destroyers and frigates and the Commando Helicopter Force squadrons, now reunited at RNAS Yeovilton, take part in various exercises in readiness to deploy at a moment’s notice.

 

The Air Station’s gates will be open to 40,000 visitors, just as they were 70 years ago in 1947 at the first ever airshow at RNAS Yeovilton, providing the perfect opportunity to see our equipment and meet our personnel first hand.

 

Over five hours of amazing flying displays will feature fast jets, historic warbirds, helicopters, formation display teams and aerobatics.

 

Plus an extensive static display will feature historic naval aircraft and their modern day counterparts in spectacular role demonstrations to acknowledge the Fleet Air Arm’s role in Protecting Our Nation’s Interests. UK and foreign military formation and solo display teams have also been invited to participate at the airshow. Thorughout the day there will be the chance to enjoy plenty of entertainment including interactive military displays, Royal Marines Band, classic and military vehicle exhibitions, funfair, trade stalls and much more.

 

Gates open 09.00

Air displays 11.00 - 16.30

Airfield closes 17.00
