Re: Scottish Airshow 2020 - funding withdrawn

Just wondered wether it hadn’t been for South Ayrshire Councils stupidity would the Coronovirus situation have meant it would have to b cancelled? It's purely speculative given no one knows when exactly the virus might peak or even be "finished", but I'd suggest not. The September date wo...

Re: Will air shows be cancelled because of coronavirus

I’m certainly expecting cancellations of early-season airshows across Europe to start being announced at any time now. Aqaba Airshow in Jordan at the end of this month has been postponed until the virus has passed, on government advice, which has been a big blow to this inaugural event and the orga...

He was formerly both England's oldest man and Britain's joint oldest man until Alfred Smith, from St Madoes, Perthshire, who shared the same birthday, died last summer

Re: RIAT 2020

This week we received great news from the Royal Navy. They will be sending examples of all their aircraft types for static display at RIAT 2020! Their new Wildcat HM2 solo display will also participate in the weekend flying display. First meh of the year for me I'm afraid - the Wildcat pair a few y...

Re: RIAT 2020

Anybody know if we can expect to see something from France this year? A Rafale pair would be lovely. France could send over the Rafale solo or the new tactical demo which consists of two Rafales which has replaced Couteau Delta. Are you talking about the pair of Rafale M? Because that didn’t replac...

They won't be coming back next year unfortunately:
