A civilian group called the Amicale Alençonnaise des Avions Anciens (known as A3A) has recently completed a restoration of an ex-French Turbo Firecat numbered T15, itself a ex-US Navy S-2F-1 Tracker. The aircraft performed its first post restoration flight on 10th October 2023 at Nîmes-Alès-Camargue-Cévennes Airport and we are pleased to announce that the A3A Turbo Firecat will be making its post-restoration UK debut at RIAT 2024 where it will appear as part of our static display.

The Gazelle Squadron will be providing Gazelle HT2 XZ939 for static at this year’s Air Tattoo. This particular airframe was previously operated by QinetiQ for flight testing and for use by the Empire Test Pilots School, and therefore very relevant for the ‘Pushing the Boundaries in Air & Space’ theme.

With the exception of the RAF Red Arrows, the Finnish Air Force are the final operator of the original Hawk in Europe. We are therefore pleased to announce that the Finnish Air Force, one of the newest members of NATO, will be sending the Midnight Hawks to display at RIAT 2024 in support of the celebration of the organisations 75th anniversary.
