UK Airshow Calendar 2010

In April 2010, there was enormous disruption to air travel across western and northern Europe due to volcanic eruptions of the Eyjafjallajokull volcano in Iceland which sent up a huge cloud of ash. From 14-20 April, ash covered large areas of northern Europe when the volcano erupted. There was concern that the eruptions would continue and affect many UK Airshows but thankfully the eruptions subsided.

This year's RAF Waddington International Air Show 2010 saw Vulcan XH558 display on both days after the paperwork was completed in time.

The Royal International Air Tattoo included the Lockheed Martin F-22A Raptor which displayed on both days and was a welcome sight after many people had missed it in 2008 because of the weather forcing the organisers to cancel the weekend show at RIAT 2008. RIAT 2010 also displayed the Spitfire & Typhoon synchro-pair and had a flypast of several warbirds to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Battle of Britain.

The Farnborough Air Show 2010 also included a display by the Lockheed Martin F-22A Raptor as well as the huge Airbus A380. There was also the first ever overseas visit of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner.

Biggin Hill International Air Fair saw its last air show in 2010, after Biggin Hill Airport Ltd gave notice to Air Displays International Ltd to terminate the licence under which the Biggin Hill International Air Fair is run.
