Yeah it could have typically been expected I guess. Have all the other British cancelled too do you know?

I have no idea, I think its best to follow their social media accounts if there are any updates.
The following UK based participants are due to display:
Royal Navy Wildcat
Rich Pitts S-2S
Firebirds

Bleedin' hope not! This would seem to be unnecessary burden on the reduced & cost-hit imminent events, even though their contribution would probably not be a deal-breaker for the quality line-up at this year's Sanicole. For sure the passing of Queen Elizabeth II is a sad event, but not unexpected & it doesn't change a thing by cancelling stuff. It was her considered & stated wish that life goes on, I think? :innocent:

Royal Navy Wildcat and The Blades have cancelled, considering the national period of mourning. Team Raven, who were due in Northern Ireland have been added to the line-up. Sadly, the Sycamore is broken in Austria so won't attend either.

Oh, that’s a real shame about the Sycamore.

Sadly, the USAF has withdrawn the F-22 fly-by, along with participation at the spottersday.

Interesting email from the Sanicole organisers today. Offering everyone a digital copy of the airshow because of the issues with the parking. We were in car park B for both the spotters day and the show day. We didn't personally have any issues. We got to the car park fairly early though both days

We were the same, although we only went on the Sunday (Friday and Saturday at Melun)

Parked in Car Park B, and less than 5 minutes wait before we boarded a bus. The same after the show (although we left before the end, at about 5.00), on a bus within 5 mins or so.

Well worth the trip, a great line-up, although I was sorry to have missed the P-38 which was pushed back from its scheduled mid-afternoon slot

The P-38 was down with a sick engine after its rehearsal on Friday :(

Oh, that's a shame. I hope it's a quick fix
