This story is over

The Royal Air Force has confirmed it will be sending its frontline fighter and ground attack aircraft to join the lineup for the highly anticipated 2017 Scampton Airshow.

Adding to an already exciting array of aircraft due to appear in Scampton on September 9 and 10, visitors will now have the chance to get up close and personal with more awe-inspiring flying machines and walk amongst the RAF’s premier aircraft in the static display park.

The RAF will be sending the Typhoon and two Tornados to the static lineup at the event. Joining them on display will be a Hawk T1, as flown by the Red Arrows, and more modern T.2.

A twin engine King Air and two Tucano trainers have also been added to the static line-up, along with the Tutor basic trainer.

Airshow Director Paul Sall is delighted with the RAF participation: “The support from the RAF for this inaugural airshow is truly exceptional.

“Scampton Airshow will offer the East of England a unique opportunity to see these aircraft, their crews and, of course, their international counterparts from France and Belgium, along with others to be announced at a later date, at close quarters. This really does stand to be a colourful and awe inspiring sight.

“Visitors can look forward to being immersed in a feast of aviation, meeting crews from around the world, getting up close to aircraft in the static park, as well as experiencing the amazing five-hour flying display.

“All of this, plus as a whole host of colourful activities happening on the ground, Scampton Airshow is perfect for families and admission is free to under 16s.”
