The Maze Long Kesh debacle rumbles on as a major event set to run at the site has been cancelled. The Ulster Aviation Society says it has had to pull the plug on two open days to be held later this month at the site of the former Maze Prison after it did not get approval for the events from Stormont. Organisers say 5,000 people attended last year's open day on a Saturday. This year they wanted to hold it on two days, to allow more enthusiasts the chance to get close to some of its aircraft.
