Cllr McKee disappointed in decission to cancel Festival of Flight.

AirshowsNI recently reached out to all Cllrs in Newry, Mourne and Down District Council, and recieved this reply from TUV Cllr, and MLA candadate for South Down, Harold McKee.

” Like yourselves I am disappointed in no air show this year again. Covid regulations was one thing but now we are all being told regulations have changed, it is now guidance. I always looked forward to this day, it was a big crowd gathering day in Newcastle.

I always liked the morning launch of the air show day accompanied with tea/coffee. It was a place of meeting with friends but most importantly it was a precursor to a massive tourism financial spend in Newcastle. It was a tremendous extravaganza to watch so many flights taking place in our sky’s.

I will continue to investigate the reasons why this display was cancelled.”
