Air display should go ahead

Hopes are high that the much-loved Battle of Britain Air Display will go ahead this September, despite the ongoing global covid crisis.

Organisers are expecting the event to happen as planned on 10 September and are working with the States as well as Public Health to ensure it would be safe.

Their update comes after the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team successfully completed an annual assessment, known as the Public Display Authority, last week. That means the Red Arrows' show has been deemed safe and presentable.

"As you will imagine, planning for this year's Air Display has been rather challenging as we have had to monitor the situation both in the UK and Guernsey and ensure we work within restrictions which are changing all the time," said Flying Display Director, Barry Neal.

"The Red Arrows being awarded their PDA last week is a big tick in the box and we hope to be able to release more information at the end of July."

Many existing consortium members and corporate friends have already agreed to continue their support for the display.

"This year, more than ever, we hope that businesses and individuals will support the Air Display to allow us to put on a wonderful show for the Guernsey community," added Natalie Davidson from the organising team at Black Vanilla.
