The 2019 Newcastle Festival of Flight will take place on the 22nd June 2019. This is due to the Reds overseas tour in Aug/Sept 2019.

A new flight director is being looked for also.

That's a quieter weekend than I had expected, only a couple of smaller shows / festivals on the calendar:

That seems like a very sensible idea,especially if they want to get the Red Arrows.If they get the weather we had late June this year it would be a bonus.

I wonder if Mourinho would be interested? He isn`t doing anything at the moment,other than sulking. :-)

Just to note, while NMD have put out a tender for a flight director, that does not mean there will be a new one. Rick Peacock-Edwards could be retained as FDD via the bidding process.

Confirmed as 22nd June now. Budget is similar to what a 2 day show would have gotten last year after reductions. So apx 120k basic from council without sponsorship factored in .
