The show must go on….
The organisers of the Throckmorton Airshow are extremely happy to confirm that on 20th April the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) gave the go ahead for the show to continue.
Since the regulation changes occurred only seven weeks ago, the show’s future has been hanging in the balance due to ‘safety changes’. The show’s organisers and volunteers had already spent months organising the event, only to be told three months prior to the show date that there was a possibility that display lines and Risk Assessments would have to be amended.
After several conversations with the Civil Aviation Authority and with no changes implemented, the organisers are pleased to announce the show’s future and everything that it stands for; raising money for charity, will be continuing.
Airshows are the UK’s second largest outdoor activity, secondary only to football – and where else can you bring the whole family for such exciting outdoor entertainment on this scale, in Worcestershire?
Throckmorton Airshow is in it’s 9th year and this year’s show promises to be the biggest and best yet.
Confirmed so far – RAF Typhoon, BBMF, Team Raven, Tiger 9, King Air and Chinook, with many more to come.
Despite the astronomical price increases from the CAA, the Airshow team are keen to reassure everyone that ticket prices will not be affected. A new Traffic Management team has been put in place and all aspects of the show have been agreed with the Safety Advisory Group (SAG).
This year the Throckmorton Team are set to raise valuable funds for Midlands Air Ambulance and RAFBF, but without your help and support the show could simply not go ahead.
Finally the team want to thank you for your patience and apologise for any inconvenience in the process of finalising key assets with the CAA; safety will and will always be our first priority. Tickets are now available online HERE you can also keep up to date with announcements on twitter @TAirshow and Facebook.
