Yep agreed.

Hoping for some more heavy metal again this year. The Hornet was superb last year!

PC7 Team confirmed

We are excited to confirm that the Swiss Air Force will be returning to RAF Cosford Air Show once again in 2020. The Swiss PC-7 Team will display their exhilarating and elegant flying formation, last seen at the Air Show in 2017, demonstrating Swiss precision at its best!

No Swiss F-18
Danish F16 confirmed for RIAT only so far
Polish F16 only self confirmed RIAT so far too

was hoping for the czech air force to return after last year but they are sending everything to Yeovilton and the Gripen and ALCA pair to Duxford so far

even the Jordanian Falcons would be good at RAF cosford but they haven't been for a while....

wonder what cosford will get?

Not everyone announces everything at the same time, there's no reason why Cosford couldn't still have one of the examples you mention above.

With Fairford been announced as cancelled - https://www.airtattoo.com/airshow/visiting/latest-news/n/2020/mar/20/important-news-about-air-tattoo-2020, surely its only a matter of time, before Cosford is also announced as cancelled?

Absolutely,

it was always possible that some, possibly all, might cancel simply because they can't predict what's going to happen. But I've always been suspicious of what appears at times to be a far too easy and eager expectation of the worst coming true?

A most interesting and puzzling reflex response for sure.

Call me naive but as a 'smaller' show (I know... I know, its still a huge event) I am hoping against hope they might look to reschedule Cosford. I guess i'm clutching at straws, but maybe its a possibility.

I would read this as 'postponed to 2021' to be honest.

Be lovely to think it could still happen this year, but given that the earliest date would likely be sometime in September, and that the season generally ends by the end of September, I'd say a postponement to any time this year, however welcome, would be pretty miraculous!
