‘A huge success’: Best of Scampton Airshow 2017 in pictures

A fantastic event.

More than 50,000 people have attended the inaugural Scampton Airshow, with organisers describing the event as a huge success.

Over 100 aircraft took part in the show at RAF Scampton over the weekend of September 9 and 10, with 41 in the flying display and 63 in the static line-up.

This was the first major airshow in Bomber County in three years, following the cancellation of the event at RAF Waddington.

Scampton Airshow chief executive Andy Armstrong said the event’s success had exceeded his expectations.

He said: “Launching a new airshow involves a huge amount of planning and I must pay tribute to the many agencies that have come together to deliver a very safe and successful event.

“We had our fair share of sunshine amongst a few short showers but this failed to dampen the spirits of our very enthusiastic and supportive visitors.

“It was great to see so many people enjoying themselves over the weekend.”
