Re: Guernsey or Jersey

Despite some last minute cancellations (BBMF, A400, Wildcat & P51), Guernsey had a varied display in dry conditions - started flat with the Blades and the 1500ft cloud ceiling gave an impressive Typhoon display with lots of fluff and noise. Chinook, RR Spitfire, Rich Goodwin, Starlings, RAFAT all en...

Re: Guernsey or Jersey

Jersey has had a budget over 3 times that of Guernsey, so previously has been able to afford such rarities as the Swedish Historics, Noratlas and French warbirds. Whether that is the case this year with the pandemic, I don’t know. Guernsey display runs from 1100 - 1315 and features much the same air...

Quite a coup - RAFAT, BBMF and Typhoon all allocated .....that’s going to bring a large headache I expect, if the crowd has to limited ?

Torbay 2021 Cancelled

The "English Riviera" Air Show at Torbay (June 5/6) has been cancelled.

As the first of the season, it was particularly vulnerable, given the lack of a road map towards the holding of events, but it won't be the last.

Re: Aero Legends 80th Anniversary Battle of Britain Airshow

Obviously not the only air show in Europe this year, as Old Warden, Guernsey, Kauhava and Vesivehmaa will testify... indeed, with the OW DH Show on Sunday, it wasn’t even the only air display of the weekend! But the organisers deserved better luck with the weather having jumped all the hurdles to ge...

Re: Guernsey Air Display 2020

It was great. Perfect weather. The only seafront display in Europe (the World?) in 2020 and, with the news from Duxford, it looks like the only UK display from RAFAT. I know how lucky we were.

Re: Guernsey Air Display 2020

48 hours to the only sea front display in Europe this year, and keeping everything crossed. As is always the case, a few last minute changes. The Lancaster has pulled out (believe it recovered into Coningsby on a 7700 code the other day).... so just Spitfire and Hurricane. Team Raven have been affec...

Re: Kauhava Airshow Finland August 2020

Well done - good to see some air display shots from this year featuring fast jets, display teams and flares.
What was the official attendance for the Show per day?
I take it the Reds has an A400 support?

Great to see shots from an international air show.

Interested to know what Covid19 mitigation’s are in place — one way systems, face masks? Any social distancing being enforced ?

Looks like Finland is going to have the only air show in Europe this year with fast jets and a foreign display team. Gripen, Rafale and Red Arrows on the participation list, as well as the Finnish Air Force assets. Mind you, the Rafale might be in doubt now with the situation in France https://www.k...

Re: Guernsey Air Display 2020

Jersey have taken a different path re COVID, and their borders are currently open, with a test on arrival. Also, they are still importing a few cases, so not yet allowing large gatherings - although that could change any time. I know they hope to hold a display of some kind subject to restrictions a...
