*** 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.
