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."

It was announced in July 2018 that RAF Scampton will close by 2022.

The first Scampton Airshow took place in September 2017 and the event raises funds for the RAF Charitable Trust.

An exciting, two-day, family friendly airshow, the RAF Scampton Airshow, which is the home of the RAF Red Arrows includes five hours of flying displays and more than 100 aircraft in attendance.

Scampton Airshow 2018:

08-09 September - Scampton Airshow 2018 - Postponed until 2019.

Scampton Airshow postponed until 2019:


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.

Scampton Airshow 2017 Review

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.
