A lot have asked us, and a lot have speculated about it. However, we can tell you that there WILL be an airshow in Newcastle in 2016 and a flight director is in place for the show!
We have been told a provisional date, however don’t want to post it until confirmed by NMD Council or Down Festivals as it is their show, and would not be fair to them to announce it ourselves.
At this time no aircraft are confirmed, and we do not expect to hear about displays until Feb/March 2016 when the RAF schedules appear.
But the news is good. the Newcastle Festival of Flight returns in 2016 and we found out via local media a push for funding went into place earlier this year and an approach to the Enterprise minister has apparently been made to secure extra funding for 2016.
