First UK airshow cancellation of 2021 as plug pulled on Scotland’s National Airshow

EAST FORTUNE | Scotland’s National Airshow, hosted by Scotland’s National Museum of Flight, will not be held in 2021.

In a statement, organisers said: “To deliver next year’s Airshow, planning and booking of display aircraft would have to start now and it’s too soon to know whether the current restrictions in response to the outbreak of Covid-19 will be fully lifted by next summer.”

Typically a one-day event held in late July, Scotland’s National Airshow was also cancelled in 2020.

Many other UK airshows are planning to go ahead next year in a socially-responsible manner. For more about how airshows are coping with the coronavirus, see our in-depth feature article.
