Peter Aldous calls on the Secretary of State for Defence to encourage the Civil Aviation Authority to take a proportionate approach to regulation and insurers to charge reasonable premiums to enable air displays to return to Armed Forces Day in Lowestoft.
The Shoreham disaster was an absolute tragedy, but we have to move forward from that. Just at the weekend I was at RAF Cosford and saw the amazing air display that took place there. It shows how such displays can inspire future generations to join the Royal Air Force and play a role in their country’s defence, and I will certainly take the point up with the Civil Aviation Authority.
