Scampton Airshow postponed until 2019:
STATEMENT BY SCAMPTON AIRSHOW LIMITED
On September 9-10 Scampton Airshow Limited, with the support of the RAF Charitable Trust Enterprises (RAFCTE), RAF personnel and a hardworking team of volunteers successfully staged a new airshow at RAF Scampton in Lincolnshire. The two-day event attracted 50,000 visitors from the East of England and beyond. Organising an aviation event on the scale of the Scampton Airshow involved many stakeholders, significant planning and we are very proud of what was collectively delivered.
However, post-event there remains a lot to reflect on and areas where we would like to improve. As the organiser, we have concluded that rather than stage an airshow in 2018, we will use next year to fully consider the many lessons learnt with the ambition of running an event in 2019. We are very grateful to the many volunteers, sponsors, participants and local agencies, as well as the many thousands of people who attended September's airshow, for their support.

Park and View 2017:
Thursday and Friday will see the North Eastern edge of RAF Scampton open to the public to view arriving aircraft. It will also be open on Monday for departures.
As there are no suitable parking facilities on the public highways and pedestrian walkways surrounding RAF Scampton, the Park & View enclosure is provided for your safety and convenience. This also means the existing Red Arrows viewing locations will be closed and instead we are providing you the opportunity to view from on the airfield itself.
Park & View also includes on airfield free parking, toilets, catering and free admission for under-16s.
