2017 International Air Day at The Royal Naval Air Station Yeovilton
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’ air show which will showcase the Royal Navy’s Fleet Air Arm, its current and future capabilities and historic accomplishments.
The gates will be open to 40,000 visitors, just as they were 70 years ago in 1947 at the first ever air show at RNAS Yeovilton, providing the perfect opportunity to see the Royal Navy’s equipment and meet our personnel first hand.
The five hours of amazing flying displays and 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 part at Air Day 2017.
Alongside the magnificent flying display there will also be a huge array of family attractions on the ground, from engineering fairs to the latest defence technology exhibitions, Service displays, trade stalls and arena displays. For the thrill-seekers there will be simulators, fairground rides and helicopter pleasure flights to enjoy.
