The Royal Navy International Air Day next year will welcome a UK flying display debut for the Lithuanian Air Force.

As the the first confirmed participant, the Lithuanian Air Force will provide an L-39 Albatros jet trainer in the flying display at Royal Naval Air Station Yeovilton on Saturday 13 July. The Baltic air arm will also reprise its 2018 static display contribution with examples of the C-27J Spartan tactical transport and Mi-8MTV-1 Hip troop transport/search and rescue helicopter.
