The Royal Navy International Air Day

RNAS Yeovilton, the spiritual home of the Royal Navy’s Fleet Air Arm, will open their gates to 40,000 visitors to enjoy the spectacular five hour flying display.

With 2020 being the 75th anniversary year of VE and VJ Days, RNIAD will be a marvellous opportunity for nations to come together in commemoration of the end of WW2, reinforcing that international cooperation continues to be vital to us all.

There will be a huge array of educational ground attractions from interactive Service displays to engineering fairs and state-of-the-art defence technology exhibitions. Families will also be able to enjoy trade stalls, arena displays, helicopter pleasure flights, simulators and fairground rides.
