Airwaves Portrush 2020 - No show in 2020

(1/5) > >>

jasT1981:
Airwaves Portrush will take place on Saturday 5th & Sunday 6th September 2020. It will be the same weekend as the returning Scottish Airshow and looks to have had a bit of a budget bump.

TCX49:
Great News! Hopefully Portrush will be able to share some displays with Ayr next year!

jasT1981:
Scotland is (or was) in talks with up to 3 international teams/displays that had never been to Scotland before according to a post a while ago.  Hopefully we get a bit more jets in 2020 now the Swedish are allowed to display again. 

jasT1981:
Some interesting news coming out of ICAS. I wonder if this might affect Portrush.

Red Arrows are to apparently undertake a European tour in the 2nd half of the 2020 season. The commentator of Sanicole Airshow  (held the week after Portrush)  talked about it and said the Red Arrows could very likely be there and it was backed up by Red 10 talking about going to Europe in the 2nd half of the season after being primarily in the UK

Nothing confirmed, of course. Still just in the talks phase and nothing decided. Only seems to be a show in Germany the weekend of Portrush and a small one at that.

Ed Winchester:
So it's the Catalina and the Pitts headlining the show.
