Newcastle Festival of Flight date confirmed


The Newcastle Festival of Flight returns on the earlier date of June 22nd 2019.

While no details of what will be involved in the flying display have yet been announced, the change in date is expected to be due to the Red Arrows ‘Western Hawk 19’ tour of North America in August & September.

Lets hope for better weather in 2019! The 2018 Festival of Flight was a total washout with heavy rain and low viability causing the show to be cancelled just as the RAF Typhoon roared in to open the show!

The date was confirmed at Mondays Enterprise, Regeneration & Tourism meeting and will have an ‘enhanced’ budget of £120,000 similar to what last years show would have been.

I look forward to seeing what displays are confirmed in the coming months!
