Since friday night there has been numerous informations on the Internet about the 2012 airshows held by the French Air Force. Some are true, others are partially true.
For clarity and to ensure anybody can reorganize his trip, here is what is happening :
- the airshows will NOT be held as previously announced.
- they are replace by 1 day on the airbase, only on sundays, on the 3 bases previously planning an airshow (Evreux, Mont de Marsan, Avord).
- there will be an aerial activity, but ONLY FRENCH AIRCRAFT WILL FLY.
- a spotter day will happen on SATURDAY AFTERNOONS for those who are already registered and wish to maintain their registration.
All definite decision have not been made yet and a supplement of information will be given on monday evening or next wednesday.

I nearly booked flights to Sardinia for a exercise at Deci within 2 Days exercise cancelled.
Nearly booked flights for Mont De Marsan now this happens.
Booked a Week off for the rumoured Slovak show 9/10th June , now in September.
It really makes me not want to book anything in advance anymore when often fights are cheap and hotels are available
Ladies & Gentlemen,
Considering the fact that the French Budgetary Committee has initiated a procedure involving their organization, the FOSA, as a preemptive measure, has decided to withdraw from the preparation of all national Air Shows for the year 2012. This decision was made given the extra amount of workload that procedure has put on the organization in terms of material and administrative constraints.
Taking this decision into account, the French Air Force wants to emphasize on the generosity, dedication and selflessness quality of the FOSA actions who have been working for many years to provide air shows of outstanding quality and, by doing so, to assist our airmen in times of need.
Being already engaged in the preparation process, the French Air Force decided to go forth with the preparation of a free event of smaller scale that will be entirely centered on Air Force Base 105 and its local influence.
This event will take place on Sunday 24th of June 2012 in Evreux.
In the next few days, this internet website will be updated by our PR and Webmaster offices to provide you with all the necessary information you might need to plan your visit on our Airbase on the 24th of June or on the afternoon of the 23rd for our spotter friends.
I am unfortunately unable to give you a thorough description of the event nor of the composition of the static and in flight displays but be assured that the entire personnel of the Air Base as well as the French Air Force as a whole and our local institutions that support the event will do their very best to make Sunday 24th of June 2012 unforgettable.
