UK Airshow Calendar 2013

The RAF Waddington International Air Show included the Swedish Air Force Historic Flight with the SAAB Sk60 (105), J29F Tunnan and the AJS37 Viggen in the flying display. The Royal International Air Tattoo displayed the Airbus A380 in formation with the Red Arrows on Saturday and the Red Arrows in formation with an Airbus A400M Atlas on Sunday. RIAT also displayed the Polish MiG-29, Hungarian Gripen and French Rafale. RIAT also introduced three large 'Service Stations' which had refreshments, visitor information, cash points, free wifi, picnic benches, and toilets this year.

There were no American military display aircraft in 2013 due to US budgetary restrictions and their understandable need to focus all their resources on fulfilling crucial missions around the world.

Duxford's Flying Legends 2013 flying display included the Grumman TBM-3E Avenger which was acquired by a Swiss collector in 2006 and brought to Switzerland and registered HB-RDG.

The popular Southend Air Show was cancelled this year after Southend Council struggles to balance its books. The Folkestone Airshow which was to have been held on the 8th June 2013 was cancelled due to funding problems. A funding shortfall ended plans to hold the first airshow at Durham Tees Valley Airport (22nd June) in more than 20 years.

This was to be the last year that the RAF Leuchars Air Show would take place as its Typhoon squadrons move to RAF Lossiemouth in 2014 allowing Leuchars to become an Army base by 2015.
