UK Airshow Calendar 2001

In 2001 there was an outbreak of foot-and-mouth disease in the UK with many areas of the countryside off-limits to the public so as to limit the spread of the disease. This obviously had an impact on air shows across the country and several events were cancelled. Many larger events such as the Mildenhall Air Fete, Waddington International Air Show, and RIAT decided to go ahead after consulting with the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food. The PFA Rally at Cranfield (6-8 July 2001) was moved from Woburn Abbey to Old Warden due to the foot-and-mouth outbreak.

The Kemble Hawker Hunter Anniversary & Air Day that took place in July 2001 managed to put up a massed flypast of fifteen Hawker Hunters to celebrate the 50th anniversary of iconic aircraft.

The RAFA/BAe Woodford Airshow (9th June) was cancelled due to the escalating cost of holding an airshow at this venue. The last three airshows at Woodford were affected by torrential rain and the Woodford Airshow would never return. RNAS Yeovilton 'International Air Day' on 14th July 2001 was cancelled due to financial concerns. They stated - Sponsorship will probably be needed for future Air Days and Yeovilton is definately looking to re-activate the Air Day in 2002.

The Ulster Air Show (16 June) and Enniskillen Air Show (17 June) both cancelled. These two events share the same Display Director, Jeff Salter, who brings in aircraft for each show. The local council said the events has had to withdraw support this year due to an overspend. The Shuttleworth Collection Spring Air Display on 13th May was cancelled in the interests of public safety due to the exceptionally wet ground conditions at Old Warden.

Runway resurfacing work at RAF Fairford meant that the Royal International Air Tattoo was held at RAF Cottesmore for a second year although it would return to RAF Fairford in 2002.
