2020 air show season – cancellations update (5)

Even though it has been only three weeks since the previous edition of air show cancellations list was published, some latest announcement resulted in the need to publish another update.

Obviously, most of the events scheduled for June 2020 were already cancelled, with those remaining few the same decision is expected to be confirmed soon. And, presumably, the summer months are following now – we can note more and more events scheduled for July, August and September, to be cancelled already (or postponed for the next year).

Although a few organizers seems to wait to the very last minute with announcing their decision, it seems rather not possible that the coronavirus precautions would be lifted completely during the following weeks. In most countries, the limit of participants for public events is still active and would be kept during the summer months.
