This could put lot of people off.
From the article in the paper.
At the Royal International Airshow Tattoo under 16s go free, and the trust plans to make ticket prices the same at RAF Scampton.


£40 is going to be a bit steep for Scampton.

Thread of the century - wonderful stuff.

I wonder what nonsense the great all knowing one will dribble forth next?

Think you owe the "bunch of muppets" a big apology... :cuppa:

Will be a very well supported event I can imagine, excellent news. :up:

"So... what aircraft have been booked, and what's the weather going to be like?" Asks skyflash

Possibly RAFAT ?

Addition after a bout of gardening.
The KingAir would be very nice and different from the normal fast jets.
A flypast of military helicopters from all NATO; police & (air ambulance - no, that is daft).
A flypast of military heavies.

I've been having flashbacks of:
From twenty-two airfields, 1,545 troop-carrying aircraft and 478 thin-skinned gliders took to the air. Most of them over our home.

Listening to the rest of the Radio show discussions about the airshow certainly has its moments :tumbleweed: :surrender: :surrender: :hypno: :joystick:

Granted you can't please everyone in the UK, or the area either. Bad enough with some on here! :roll:

A bout of gardening or a bout of heavy drinking? ;-)

The King Air is too dangerous remember! :-o

Just been amusing myself with a read back through this rather splendid thread and to be fair to n7651248568936521478785078* (and where is he by the way, I'm getting a little concerned...) there were a couple of other forumites who were just as forthcoming with their 'I'm in the special club I know more than you' comments - perhaps they should be equally vilified, y'know what with everything being fair and all.

I am glad that I was one of the supporters of the new show at Scampton right from the first time we heard about it!! despite what n0143773 was saying

I believe that the RAF Waddington Airshow director will be involved with the new Scampton show so there is a possibility of the new show being the best of Waddington and RIAT combined!

as mentioned on the RIAT and Scampton thread it is at least likely that Scampton will host the Red Arrows anniversary airshows rather than Fairford.

Does anyone know if Scampton can accommodate flares??
