Scampton Airshow to feature special flypast to salute RAF in Lincolnshire

This year’s inaugural Scampton Airshow will feature two special flypasts to salute the Royal Air Force’s close links with the county of Lincolnshire.

The airshow, which takes place at RAF Scampton on September 9 and 10, will see the nine Hawks of the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team, the Red Arrows, in formation with a Sentinel airborne surveillance aircraft.

On the Saturday only, this formation will be followed by a Sentry airborne warning and control system platform.

Lincolnshire is known to many as being among the RAF’s great heartlands, given the number of bases that have been located within the county past and present.

The combination of the Red Arrows from Scampton and the Sentinel and Sentry from Waddington – both of which will be making their only flying display appearances this year – is sure to be an occasion to remember.

Tickets are available on the website here.
