RAF Scampton will host an airshow in 2017

Several UK media websites announced that an agreement has been made that an airshow can be organised at RAF Scampton airbase, which is alos the home of the Red Arrows.

As previously reported, the popular air show at RAF Waddington was officially scrapped in September 2015 due to “significant security concerns and operational risks,” as the base is home to the 39 Squadron which controls the Reaper drones in Afghanistan. A major runway replacement project is also underway…Calls for a replacement show in Lincolnshire grew louder following the decision, with RAF Scampton’s Station Commander, Mike Harrop, telling The Lincolnite he would welcome an air showon the base.  – thelincolnite.co.uk
