The event, scheduled for Saturday 22nd June, was due to see all the Historic Aircraft Collection’s planes take to the sky, as well as a small number of visiting aircraft. This was to include the much-awaited display debut of the newly-restored Airco DH.9,

However, the Imperial War Museum said that the weather forecast for this week and for the day of the event now means that the DH.9 is unlikely to be ready in time, forcing them to take the “difficult decision” to cancel the show.

Historian Andy Saunders said on Twitter that he’d been asked to share the news that the event had been cancelled due to “technical reasons”.

Ticket holders have been contacted by the Imperial War Museum with further information.
