6 thoughts on “Airshow Dates 2012 – United Kingdom

  1. No, it has been replaced by the Best of British Show on 26-27 August. This seems to be a sort of “wings and wheels” event full of non-aeroplane clutter.

  2. Would anyone know how we can sell some WW2 military books at airshows, ie. who should we contact? Any advice would be welcome.

  3. Where can I find the aeroflight shows listed for 2013?
    I find this list very useful for collecting shows to see
    and am disappointed not to have this very useful info
    to hand at this time. 09/02/2013

  4. Tony,

    I have now uploaded an initial list of the 2013 airshows. The list is incomplete and I will add the missing ones as time permits. I am trying a new plugin that allows users to add events to their personnel calendars (Google calendar/smart phone calendar etc.) via an iCal upload. It also allows historical dates to be added for future reference and maps of the venues.

    The page layout may need some tweaking in the coming months. User feedback is always useful.
