Joining the line-up on September 9 and 10 will be a second Typhoon FGR.4 from Coningsby, a Squirrel HT.1 helicopter and the mighty A400M Atlas.
These aircraft join one of the largest gatherings of RAF aircraft at an airshow this year, including:
There will also be a mix of static aircraft from around the world, including rare types like the Blackburn Buccaneer and Sukhoi Su-22 and foreign military visitors like the Canadian CF-18, two Dutch F-16s and Germany’s Eurofighter.
In the skies above RAF Scampton, there will also be two special flypasts to salute the Royal Air Force’s close links with the county of Lincolnshire.
On Saturday, September 9 the airshow will see the nine Hawks of the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team, the Red Arrows, in formation with a Sentinel airborne surveillance aircraft. This formation will also be followed by an E-3D Sentry.
On Sunday, September 10 the Red Arrows will fly in formation with the Sentinel only.
