IT HAS just been confirmed, The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight (BBMF) will not fly at this weekend’s Rhyl Air Show. 

Earlier this month, a routine inspection highlighted a fault with one of the Merlin engines in a Hurricane aircraft. A decision was taken to temporarily pause flying of aircraft powered by Merlin engines.

As a result, the BBMF’s iconic Spitfire and Hurricane fighters will not be appearing in the skies this weekend.

Denbighshire County Council will be releasing a statement shortly. 

The BBMF was scheduled to display at 2pm on both days of the Rhyl Air Show.
