Sundays Airshow Cancelled Due to Severe Weather Conditions

Due to severe weather conditions forecast on Sunday and Monday (September 15/16), the Sunday of this weekend’s Southport Air Show has been cancelled.

Saturday’s show will still go ahead as planned with the Red Arrows opening the flying schedule at 1pm.

Other aircraft taking to the skies on Saturday includes the Typhoon, the historic Battle Of Britain Memorial Flight, Spitfire, Blades, Merlin, Miss Demeanour and many more.

However, organisers of the event have taken into account the weather forecast and advice from the flying director after many aircraft pulled out of Sunday’s programme to cancel Sunday’s show.

Tickets purchased for Sunday can still be used on Saturday and anyone planning to attend the event should aim to arrive as early as possible to avoid any possible queues.

The show opens at 9am with the biggest Air Show village ever offering plenty of entertainment on the ground.

A spokesman for the event said: “Due to severe weather conditions forecast, the Southport Air show has been cancelled on the Sunday (September 15) only.

“Heavy rain and high winds are forecast on Sunday and Monday which has left the organisers with no option other than to call off the event.

“Unfortunately we cannot control the weather and can only apologise to our customers for any inconvenience.

“The weather looks favourable on Saturday and the show will go ahead as planned with some fantastic aircraft lined up.

“If people don’t use their tickets for Saturday’s show, details for any refunds will be made available on Monday via the visitsouthport website.”
