Virginia Beach, Va. – The 2015 Biplanes and Triplanes Airshow, scheduled to be held October 3-4 in Virginia Beach has been canceled due to forecasted foul weather.

High winds and rains are possible from Tropical Storm Joaquin.

There are no plans to reschedule the airshow this year but it is planned to return in 2016.

“Between the heavy rain affecting runway conditions and possible crosswinds coming off those strong winds from the north, we decided it was best to give our guests as much of an advanced notice as possible. We wanted folks to have the chance to plan ahead and avoid any unnecessary travel with such blustery weather conditions,” said Mike Potter, director of the Military Aviation Museum.

For attendees that have already purchased their tickets, they can either be turned in for a full refund or they can be exchanged for tickets to the 2016 Warbirds Over the Beach Air Show, coming up May 21-22. By trading in their tickets, attendees will save $10 per ticket on the normal Warbirds ticket prices. The refund policy only applies to purchased tickets.
