Flying Legends Airshow will not go ahead in 2024

The organisers of the famous warbird event, most recently held at Church Fenton, have released a statement

Sadly, the Flying Legends Airshow will not be taking place in 2024. The Fighter Collection’s Nick Grey has released the following statement:

“It is with much regret that we confirm our decision to cancel the upcoming Flying Legends Airshow 2024.

This decision has not been made lightly and follows an in depth assessment of our options for the year ahead. We appreciate the rich history, the thrill, and the joy that Flying Legends brings to aviation enthusiasts from around the world. Each year we gather to celebrate our love of classic aviation, to marvel at the beauty of these legendary aircraft, and to honour the men and women who designed, manufactured, maintained, and fought in these epic machines.

We would like to thank Chris and Sally Makin and their amazing team at Church Fenton for the energy and professionalism with which they hosted Flying Legends 2023 and to thank all who participated in getting FL23 airborne at such short notice and with such conviction and panache.

Let me assure you that we will not let this decision dampen our spirits as we explore our options for the future. We promise to keep you posted as we gather our thoughts for 2025 and beyond.

Thank you for your understanding and friendship. Soon we will meet again, and until then, let us stay optimistic, safe in the knowledge that the Show Must Go on.

The whole team at The Fighter Collection, wish you and your families health, love and happiness for Christmas and the New Year.”
