The Branscombe Air Day and associated LAA Devon Strut and Aeronca Club fly-ins, planned for 27th July have been cancelled. A minority of local individuals opposed to the airfield have organised a clay pigeon shoot in an adjacent field on the same day and, in the absence of help or support from the police or local council, the airfield owner David Hayman considers it to be too dangerous to continue with the Air Day. Local villagers, aviation groups and vintage car clubs are hugely disappointed at the loss of this East Devon spectacle which has raised many tens of thousands of pounds for charities over the years
