HOSTED BY THE YS MILITARY AIRSHOWS ASSOCIATION
October 9th, 2021
Saturday - 1500 UTC
We at the YS Military Airshows Association (YSMAA) invite all members of YSFlight Headquarters to join us at our inaugural airshow this October: the one and only YS Royal International Air Tattoo, hosted at RAF Fairford in Gloucestershire, England! In collaboration with YSAA's Alpha Star as our special guest narrator, we are revitalizing this virtual aviation spectacle for all to enjoy, putting on display the most powerful, most graceful, and most skilled that the world of military aviation and airpower has to offer.
This thunderous event, in addition to featuring commanding airpower from around the world, will also see the debut performance of the 2nd United Combat Wing's own three-ship Windigos Jet Team. We hope you'll join us in the United Kingdom for this event, because you won't want to miss it!
Scenery: RAF Fairford + TF58 Ground Objects

Due to the military-specific focus of all airshows hosted by YSMAA, we will not accept civilian displays (and by extension, displays meant to promote civilian organizations) for YSRIAT. The sole exception to this rule is for civilian-owned military warbirds. Also, single performers are limited to entering with two (2) solo displays.
To sign up for YSRIAT 2021, please fill out this brief questionnaire and post it as a reply to this thread. Upon approval, your entry will be added to the schedule in short order.
|Additional Notes (optional):
We are looking forward to bring the classic mass flight back to a YSFlight airshow for the first time since the days of YSAS! These are a special part of the show in which all participants, performers and spectators alike, can take part and fly. For YSRIAT 2021, our two mass flights will be before and during the show:
-Hot Air Balloon Mass Flight (PRE-SHOW) - Exactly what it says: before the show begins, the server will be unlocked, and all participants will be allowed to fly around the airspace in hot air balloons.
-The Marine's Rally (MID-SHOW) - In remembrance of our friend Gunny, this mid-show mass flight will consist of three (3) laps around the pattern, using a selection of his own aircraft mods.
With regards to the latter, we are also looking to feature, as part of the tribute to Gunny, a collection of brief voiceovers from members of YSFHQ discussing his legacy. If you would like to contribute to this part of the flight, you should contact me directly (see contact section below).
