UK Airshow Calendar 2019

This year saw the retirement of the Tornado GR4 at the end of march 2019, after 40 years of service. There were a series Tornado flypasts in February 2019 and you can read more here.

It was also the 75th anniversary of D-Day which was marked by a special event in June 2019 at Portsmouth and in Normandy. Many Douglas DC-3/C-47's 'Dakotas' flew to the UK from North America and Europe where they attended the 'Daks over Duxford' event before flying to France for the 'Daks over Normandy' event. You can read more about this here.

The Red Arrows carried out their largest ever tour of North America, over nine weeks, in August and September 2019. They were certainly missed by the public who attending UK shows after the Royal International Air Tattoo at the end of July.

The 'Silver Spitfire' embarked on a round-the-world flight, starting from Goodwood on Monday 5th August 2019. The Spitfire Mk.IX will be flown by British pilots Matt Jones and Steve Brooks as they fly westwards around the world via the Arctic, North America, Alaska, Russia southwards to Asia, the Middle East and back to Europe, in this iconic aircraft which is finished in a polished aluminium scheme.

Dunsfold Wings and Wheels announced that 2019 would be see its last airshow because 'it has been challenging to keep putting on the best airshow we can in the current aviation and economic climate.'

The Farnborough Airshow also announced that there would not be a public weekend flying display in 2020 but there would be a public event on Friday only.

The Abingdon Air & Country Show initially announced that 2019 would see the last ever flying display but the show would continue in new format which included a large fly-in. After a rethink later stated that Flying Displays would continue however it would be primarily limited to helicopters of all types with all three armed services being requested to take part aswell as a host of civilian helicopter operators and a few overseas air arms being invited. The Country Show will also be enlarged with a bigger Classic Vehicle / Motorbike / Commercial Trucks / Vintage Buses etc area and a re-instatement of the popular Crafts Marquee.

The RAF Cosford Air Show celebrated the 'NATO 70th anniversary' as well as 65 years since the first flight of the Jet Provost. The show featured plenty of foreign participants including the Swiss F/A-18C Hornet, Czech Air Force Aero L-159 ALCA x2, Czech Air Force JAS-39C Gripen, German Navy P-3C Orion, Royal Danish Air Force 'Baby Blue' Display Team and the Belgian Air Force A109.

The Royal International Air Tattoo themes included 'Air & Space' and 'NATO 70th anniversary'. Highlights of the flying display included two Spanish Navy EAV-8B Harrier IIs, USAF F-16 Viper Demonstration Team, F-35B Lightning II, Romanian Air Force MiG-21 LanceR, Ukranian Air Force Su-27P1M Flanker and a superb flying display by the Finnish Air Force F/A-18C Hornet. There was also a pair of Turkish Air Force F-4E Phantoms on static display.

A third batch of UK F-35B Lightning II aircraft crossed the Atlantic and landed at RAF Marham on the evening of Tuesday 16th July 2019. These six aircraft belong to 207 (OCU) Squadron and will be based at RAF Marham where they will train Royal Air Force and Royal Navy pilots.

HMS Queen Elizabeth Carrier set sail from Portsmouth on 30th August 2019 to deploy to the East Coast of the United States to conduct operational trials with British F-35B aircraft as well as Merlin helicopters.
