UK Airshow Calendar 2005

The North Weald Aerofair in 2005 which was to be held on 13th-15th May was cancelled after the loss of two major sponsors coupled with a substantial rise in costs. The East Fortune Airshow which was to be held on 9th July 2005 was cancelled because of the G8 summit. The leaders of the eight top industrial nations were to meet at Gleneagles in Perthshire just days before the show and Air show officials said there was uncertainty about landing slots and storage space for aircraft at Edinburgh Airport, the main hub for G8 delegates.

With the Royal Navy Sea Harrier being withdrawn from service in 2006 it was the last chance to see these aircraft at an air show and a four-ship displayed at the 2005 Royal International Air Tattoo, the RAF Waddington International Air Show, and the RNAS Yeovilton International Air Day 2005.

The Royal International Air Tattoo in 2005 also displayed the ScanEagle UAV, although its small size at this large event meant that few people actually saw it.
