Lossie Fest 2024: What you need to know

The tickets are fully allocated, and the wait is almost over...

RAF Lossiemouth will be holding our annual Friends and Families event - Lossie Fest - on Saturday 13 July 2024.

Lossie Fest is the Station’s way of saying 'thank you' to those who have directly supported our service personnel over the last 12 months.

With Team Lossie delivering more on operations, more is being asked of friends and families - which is why we celebrate the role they play in helping the Station deliver its mission. 

The day itself will feature stalls and attractions for all the family, and a limited flying display (weather and operational commitments permitting).

1100 - Gates Open

1200 (noon) - Event starts

Safety Information

Aircraft operating within the display box are bound by the regulations set out by the Military and Civilian Aviation Authorities. Display aircraft will not plan to overfly occupied structures at less than 500ft.

All at RAF Lossiemouth want to assure the community, as with all our activities, safety is our primary consideration. Our Flying Display Director has carried out the appropriate risk assessments required by the Military and Civil Aviation Authorities for the flying displays.

Thank you to our neighbours

We apologise in advance for any disturbance this event may cause but hope many in the local area are able to enjoy the flying displays on the day. On behalf of the Station Commander, we also thank you for your patience during the road closure period.
