Scampton Airshow

Scampton Airshow

Scampton Airshow.

RAF Scampton hosted a two-day Airshow in September 2017, raising funds for the RAF Charitable Trust, but subsequent Airshows were cancelled.

It has also been announced that RAF Scampton will close by 2022 and the Red Arrows will move to RAF Waddington.

Scampton Airshow News:


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.

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 hoped that RAF Scampton would host another event in 2019 but this never happened.

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