Guernsey Air Display 2020

Post by Witchcraft24 »

Announced today that the Guernsey Air Display will take place on Sept 10th, assuming no changes to the local COVID situation.

RAFAT and BBMF (Dakota, 2 Spitfires) confirmed plus Catalina self confirmed on their website.

As welcome news as this is to Guernsey folk, this isn’t much good to most on here, as Guernsey is currently COVID free and is maintaining a 14 day quarantine period for all U.K. arrivals in order to keep it that way.

Would this also include a display at Jersey. I attended the display over St Helier last year which was excellent, except for some rather mixed weather.

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 at the time, although it seems unlikely it would include the Swedish Historics....

Perhaps somebody else knows more?
