RAF Cosford Air Show 2021 - POSTPONED

Post by UK Airshow Review »

Dear All,

We have just received the following from RAF Cosford....
RAF COSFORD AIR SHOW 2021 POSTPONED


Due to the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions, and the resulting short-term uncertainty for mass events, the RAF Cosford Air Show team have taken the difficult decision to postpone this year’s event, which was to be held on Sunday 13th June 2021.

Whilst the Air Show Team is disappointed to be in this position once again, they are already reviewing options to create a smaller, socially-distanced event across the weekend of the 11th and 12th September 2021. Further details will be announced through Air Show social media and the Air Show website www.cosfordairshow.co.uk once the position for mass events is clearer.

Air Show Director, Mr Clive Elliott, said, “The health and well-being of our visitors and serving personnel is always our top priority. The team is working hard to develop an event which will include many of the familiar Air Show highlights whilst keeping our visitors safe.”

Customers who have held onto their 2020 tickets can request a refund at www.cosfordairshow.co.uk/tickets or they will remain valid for the next Air Show event.

Big news that it’s the first(?) RAF Cosford Airshow that’s finally gunning for two days, too.

Presumably to spread the crowd out (I’d have thought Cosford wouldn’t be too bad a place for a drive-in format with a reduced crowd), but in any event if it works, it’s easier to make the case for it in the future.

Nice to see an RAF airshow return to the September slot, too.

A busy weekend - same as Sanicole and Villaroche/Melun (and Abingdon).... fingers crossed that we are in a place where all these events can take place.

Sanicole already has the Patrouille Suisse, Swiss F18 demo and will get all the Belgian displays ( F16, A109, Red Devils, F16 formation ) but we don't know what the state of vaccinations will be like in Belgium as they are well behind the UK at present so there is no guarantee it will go ahead plus its not the largest of venues....

If RAF Cosford does manage to stage any sort of drive in/socially distant airshow I will be more than happy to go with RAF/ RN/ AAC displays plus UK warbirds and civillian team displays.

for them to attract anything foreign they do need to confirm the dates, but as above I will be happy with anything given the loss of RIAT/ Yeovilton this year so far.

Good luck to the RAF Cosford team - keeping fingers crossed

Seems encouraging, if June 21st is the date restrictions cease, for a decent Cosford show in September.
