After three years, RAF Fairford finally hosted the world’s largest military airshow again. 

From July 15 to 17, 2022, the Royal International Air Tattoo returned after three years with its 2022 edition, which is already considered the most successful edition (in recent times) of the world’s largest military airshow. The previous RIAT had been held in 2019, as the 2020 and 2021 editions were cancelled because of the COVID-19 pandemic. This year the theme of the airshow was “Training the Next Generation Air Force”, with also a focus on the 75th Anniversary of the United States Air Force. The airshow welcomed 266 aircraft and 1,500 crew members from across the globe.
