Important Announcement - RNIAD21 Cancellation

Post by RAF4EVER »

ROYAL NAVY INTERNATIONAL AIR DAY 2021 CANCELLED

With great regret, we must announce that the Royal Navy International Air Day (RNIAD) will not take place this year as scheduled at RNAS Yeovilton, Somerset, on Saturday 10 July.

Due to the ongoing uncertainty with the COVID-19 pandemic and current government policy on large outdoor gatherings, the risks associated with hosting a large-scale international event in July is too significant for all parties involved. It is therefore with great disappointment that the Royal Navy has had to make the difficult decision to cancel their flagship public event.

The annual airshow welcomes over 35,000 visitors from across the UK and aviation enthusiasts from around the world as well as many aircraft from allied nations to participate in the extensive flying and static displays. The Royal Navy and AHA Events Ltd would like to take this opportunity to thank them, along with sponsors, exhibitors, service providers, station personnel and the many other stakeholders, for their continued support to the RNIAD and hope to welcome them back in 2022.

shuttleworth may be the only winner owing to the drive in.
if Duxford couldn't host the BoB show last year, they ain't going to be able to host the their July show at this rate. the showcase days maybe, but i doubt the full show days
