After three years without a major air show in Lincolnshire, crowds totaling some 50,000 braved inclement weather for the inaugural Scampton Air Show on 9th and 10th September. Held at the famous air base, now the home of the Red Arrows, this was the airfield from which the legendary ‘Dams Raid’ was launched in May 1943. The new air show was eagerly anticipated and generally much enjoyed by those who attended, despite the weather. The event, which will now be an annual feature of the air show calendar, is run by the same team that organises the Royal International Air Tattoo to raise funds to support the RAF Charitable Trust.
