RNAS Yeovilton International Air Day

Saturday 7th July 2018

Bring the noise! The Typhoon FGR4 will be showcasing the sharp end of the RAF. A true multirole combat aircraft, the Typhoon’s taskings include UK QRA (Quick Reaction Alert) duties, air-to-air combat, air policing and peace support.

Demonstrating the type’s outstanding performance capability will be Flight Lieutenant Jim Peterson, this year’s RAF Typhoon Display Team pilot.

The uniquely airworthy Bristol Sycamore will also be delivering some RAF100 zest to the show. Entering RAF service ahead of all other British-designed helicopters, the Sycamore was a real rotary pioneer.

It was first flown in July 1947, barely two years after the end of WW2. Less than a dozen Sycamores now remain and this one, as the world's only flyer, brings distinction and rarity to Air Day. 

Further RAF100 related aircraft participation will be announced in due course. To book tickets and to see the full list of participating aircraft visit www.royalnavy.mod.uk/yeovilton-airday.
