Blackpool Air Show - Saturday cancelled due to weather concerns

The first day of the Blackpool Air Show has been called off due to safety concerns.

Due to a forecast of extreme weather conditions tomorrow, the first day of the Blackpool Air Show has been cancelled. 

The second day will go ahead on Sunday with as full a programme as possible, with a 1pm start on the Tower Festival Headland. 

In a statement organisers said the safety of the pilots and the watching public is paramount, and ith wind speeds forecast at more than 45mph on Saturday afternoon there is no option other than to cancel.

They hope that as many people as possible will come out on Sunday to watch what should be a spectacular afternoon of free entertainment.
