Dawlish Airshow 2018????

Postby DDM10 on Tue 30 Jan 2018, 1:25 am

I read a little while ago that there were talks to raise funds for the return of the Dawlish Airshow:
http://www.dawlishnewspapers.co.uk/article.cfm?id=104587&headline=New%20plans%20to%20get%20air%20show%20off%20the%20ground&sectionIs=news&searchyear=2017

I was wondering if anyone has any updates on the progress of the plans, or any information on the likelihood of the return of the show?

Seems very very unlikely for 2018. Bids for RAF assets needed to be in back in September, and Bournemouth also clashes with Prestwick/Portrush again this year, so their stated plan to ring fence money for the Red Arrows might not be viable.

Good to see the local council getting behind this event, if this report is accurate. Maybe 2019?

Thank you for the reply, I thought it sounded unlikely.
It would be great to see the airshow return in the near future though, was arguably one of the best located in the UK.

Bearing in mind of course that if the airshow returns it's highly unlikely that Smugglers Hill will be available as a vantage point.
