Farnborough Airshow 2022: RIAT’s Return
The long-anticipated return of the Royal International Air Tattoo (RIAT), held at RAF Fairford on July 15-17 after its two-year COVID-enforced hiatus attracted aircraft from across the world in a show of force by allies and partners.
Some 266 aircraft from 31 countries, including Canada, Kuwait, Japan, South Korea, made transcontinental and oceanic journeys to reach the show. Among those countries was Bahrain which became the 57th nation to attend the event since the first show in 1971. Aviation Week’s London Bureau Chief Tony Osborne attended the arrivals day on July 14.
