Everyone claims to know industry insiders, the man who drives the concrete smashing machine, the dumper truck driver.....
The re-brand is purely that, it’s the Navy’s airshow, not a subterfuge so it can be moved around, and as stated at numerous locations on social media, planning for next years is already underway, breaking up 120,000 cu metres or so of concrete and denying UK Mil PLC just about its only reliable weather diversion in the SW isn’t a decision that will be taken quickly

I see, so the talk of runway resurfacing is just a lie that has run and run to the point of becoming an accepted fact. It's amazing how strong these rumours become, to the point that the truth finds it nearly impossible to be heard and spread. So there is no plan whatsoever for runway work at Yeovilton and thus the air day is safe for years to come.

Have they announced next years date yet or do the Navy not commit as early as RIAT do?
