Hoping 2021 will see a return to normal

For me

MAY
Duxford Air Festival

JUNE
Newcastle FoF (Assuming it is to go ahead, I could see it being moved back to August for 2021 if it is to go ahead)
Queen's Birthday Flypast
Cosford

JULY
RIAT (Friday, Saturday & Sunday)

SEPTEMBER
Duxford Battle of Britain

POSSIBLE
Bray (depending on date)
Cobh - Seems to be middle of August which is a clear month for me, but being down in Cork it might be tricky.

Honestly, none. Will take each month as it comes, it avoids disappointment and battling to get deposits back.
The owner of the gite we usually take in Normandy for the D-Day commemorations has booked us in 'provisionally' but won't take payment, he doubts there will be any return to mass events in France in 2021.

I'm just trying to be positive. Need something to look forward to after this year. So many shelved plans etc.
Accomodation and flights booked for July trip.
French trip I will likely hold of on flights to see what happens. Accomodation car hire etc will be booked with free cancellation in mind though.

Yup likewise here :( I don't see Newcastle happening either though officially no word on it

Still hoping for Duxford and Cosford in September, but I think its a washout.

Hoping 2022 will be better. I still have Queens Birthday booked but I could see it being cancelled./

Well, todays announcement has me cautiously optimistic I will see aircraft displaying in September at Cosford and Duxford. Might try and do Duxford's July show if it is allowed to happen.

So, I decided to book Legends only for it to cancel :( Still going to make a trip of it though. My IWM Membership allows me free onto HMS Belfast, something I have always wanted to do.

Also booked Duxford's July show yesterday, optimistic it will go ahead as their covid policy is pretty big. Not allowed to leave your assigned zone which has to be chosen when booking, hangars closed and you have to prove vaccine status or a recent negative test. I've had both jabs and take a weekly Rapid Flow Test anyway, so nothing too major for me.

Line up isn't exactly Steller. But given its been 2 years since a show was held, its a good line up.

All my plans were scrapped.
Still hoping I might get to Paris for Sir legends in September though

I've hotel and flights for Duxford's September show booked, well, both are rearranged from last years September show being cancelled. Hoping to do Cosford also in September if they are able to do it.
