Organisers of the Aylsham Show have confirmed that the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight will not be performing a flypast at the Bank Holiday Monday event next week.

A Hurricane and a Spitfire were due to be part of the programme at the August 28th agricultural show, but will not now be appearing due to engine problems.

A show spokesman said: “Unfortunately we were told on Tuesday 22nd that the Flight will not be able to attend as feared a few days ago.

“However the show is very much open for business and there will be plenty of excitement and adrenalin on hand, including the aerial tricks of the Jason Smyth quad bike stunt show and the pinpoint accuracy of the Red Devils parachutists.

“We will also look at finding a replacement of some sort for the Memorial Flight and will be making contact with suitable organisations over the next couple of days.

“And of course the full range of traditional Aylsham Show entertainment will also be available, including animal lines, heavy horses, children’s fancy dress, sheepdogs, stalls and fantastic food among a very long list.”
