Public Weekend At Farnborough Airshow Cancelled

Posted on March 6, 2019

Organisers said the Shoreham air crash had “expedited” the decision, which comes amid a “dwindling number” of spectators.
A spokeswoman said organisers could “no longer provide an airshow the public want”.
The event will focus on its five-day trade show.
The Farnborough Airshow will still include trade flying displays when the biennial event takes place in July 2020.
In a statement, organisers said the exhibition halls would be open to the public on the Friday of the airshow, while it would “focus on inspiring the next generation and showcasing the technologies driving new products and manufacturing processes”.
Spokeswoman Mary Kearney said the airshow appreciated the affection plane lovers had for the public weekend, but it received “very negative and vitriolic feedback from 2018”.
She added the effects that the Shoreham air crash had on air displays “certainly had an impact” and “expedited this decision”.
