An array of RAF assets are already due to take to the Scampton Airshow skies.

Visitors will now have the chance to get up close and personal with these flying machines and walk amongst the RAF’s premier aircraft in the static display park.

The RAF will be sending both its frontline fighter/ground attack aircraft to the static line up; the Typhoon and two Tornados.

Joining them on static 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.

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.
