Cosford Airshow now officially cancelled for 2020

The Red Arrows

The Royal Air Force has confirmed that the 2020 RAF Cosford Airshow has been officially cancelled.

The organisers originally postponed the event hoping to run the airshow later in 2020 but say they are now clear that the precautions necessary to safely run the airshow under guidelines to prevent the spread of COVID-19 will be impossible to implement.

In a statement the RAF said: “The decision to cancel has not been taken lightly. The Royal Air Force relies on support from international air forces and assistance from local civilian services, our commercial sponsors and volunteers to stage the Cosford Air Show. We are also indebted to the general public, who attend in their tens of thousands every year.”

The airshow will now take place in 2021.
