Don't think we will be seeing the Ultimate fighters as they are booked for the Royal Navy Show at Yeovilton ? :question:

it was the right decision given everything else around that time has gone already.
my feeling is that September will also go as well. even if we come out of "lockdown" social distancing will remain for the foreseeable do im not expect any airshows, gigs or major gatherings to take place this year.

i hope i'm wrong but that feels like the trajectory at the moment

fair point. i suppose you could limit the amount of people in the museum easier than at an air show, but i agree we may not see it open any time soon

Down here in Australia, where we have been relatively fortunate to 'only' lose about 70 to the virus, our state's Chief Medical Officer has said that the ban on mass gatherings will likely continue into 2021. Forget about sporting events, festivals, theatre performances, pubs and nightclubs.
Cheers,

George
