Newcastle date confirmed

*** Newcastle date confirmed ***

I spoke to the organisers this afternoon and it is confirmed that the Newcastle Festival of Flight is staying as a 1 day show. The date will be Saturday 11th August 2018.

I know this is disappointing for some, however there is still a great increase in the budget for the 2018 show over last year.

RAF display dates have not yet been confirmed by the RAF display teams so it is not yet known what is allocated to Newcastle.

I will keep you updated as best I can. But Saturday 11th August 2018 is the date of the 2018 Festival of Flight.

RAF National Aircraft Tour

*** RAF National Aircraft Tour ***
While more information will come nearer the time, Newcastle has been selected as one of 6 major UK locations in 2018 (Outside of national airshows such as Portrush, Cosford, RIAT, Scottish Air Show etc)
There is a plan for a ‘National Aircraft Tour’ giving people the chance to see historical aircraft close up on what sounds like a static display.
While no RAF Flying displays dates have been announced yet by the RAF display teams, I would expect them to come within the next month or so based on previous years.
More news on this, including aircraft type as part of the national aircraft tour, as well as dates closer to the time. (Photo from RAF website)
