UK Airshow Calendar 2003

It was announced that the Mildenhall Air Fete which was to have taken place on May 24-25th 2003 was cancelled due to increased operational requirements in support of the Global War on Terrorism. The last Mildenhall Air Fete was held in 2001.

The RAF Cosford Air Show which was to be held on the 8th June 2003 was cancelled for the first time since the event began 25 years ago. The organisers made the decision because they did not know whether there will be enough military aircraft to take part in the event as a result of the Iraq crisis. The air show's organisers said the decision has not been taken lightly, but that uncertainties over events in the Gulf have made the action necessary. A spokesman said the early cancellation would safeguard future funding and enable the event to continue in years to come.

The Sleap 2003 airshow was cancelled due to two reasons. Firstly, the huge loss that was made last year and secondly, the landowners are making the road access to the airfield twice the width. This work was due to start in August, which is when the show would have been happening.
