RAF Scampton Airshow.

Scampton Airshow History
RAF Scampton in Lincolnshire is home to the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team, the Red Arrows.

The RAF Waddington International Air Show was scrapped as a result of a Ministry of Defence review during 2015 which also concluded that RAF Scampton was an ideal location for a new airshow.

The RAF Charitable Trust announced on 19th February 2016 that it had reached an agreement in principle with the Royal Air Force to organise an air show at RAF Scampton as early as September 2017.

It was announced on the 26th May 2016 that the Scampton Airshow will be a two-day event with September 9th-10th 2017 the most likely dates.

Wg Cdr Campbell said: "We are absolutely delighted that RAF Scampton has been chosen to host the Scampton Airshow here in Lincolnshire and we are working closely with the RAF Charitable Trust to help them deliver what promises to be a fantastic two-day event."

Ground Entertainment
It won't all be about what's going on in the skies above Scampton.

On the ground, visitors will be swept along on an aviation journey through the ages, from a nostalgic Vintage Village - offering access to the station's Heritage Centre - through to interactive and engaging exhibits from across industry in the Techno Zone.

There will also be the opportunity to learn about the modern-day Royal Air Force in the RAF Village where serving personnel will be on hand to give an insight into the many roles they perform.
