Caroline watched the whole half hour practice session from near to RAF Scampton on Thursday, May 28, whilst adhering to all coronavirus lockdown guidance and legislation.

She told The Lincolnite: “The Red Arrows are always impressive and it is always lovely to see them fly and I am hoping we may get to see them display at some point this year.”

It was announced last month that the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team will stay in Lincolnshire and move to RAF Waddington once RAF Scampton is closed.

The Ministry of Defence had confirmed that the Red Arrows will continue to practice above the city and Scampton, since their new planned headquarters will only be 10 miles from their current home.

Caroline added: “It’s obviously great for the county that they are staying as Lincolnshire has such strong historical connections with the RAF.”
