Whilst I understand that operational activity and increased security threats have raised the risk of hosting a major public event at RAF Waddington in my Constituency, I’m naturally extremely disappointed by the decision of the Air Force Board Standing Committee who’ve decided that no further air shows will be hosted at the Station. Of course, this very sad news is tempered by the plans for a similar event to be hosted at RAF Scampton in due course. In the run up to the 100th anniversary of the Royal Air Force, it is important to all of us in Bomber (and Fighter) County that we retain an International Air Show very close to its original home just north of Lincoln in Scampton, the home of the Red Arrows, and that the RAF intends to maintain its traditional and modern links to Lincolnshire. Maybe now the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight will relocate to the same base too.
It has been confirmed this afternoon that there will no longer be an airshow held at RAF Waddington.
The show was cancelled this year while work to replace the runway is carried out, but now the RAF says increased security concerns and operational risks mean it will be no longer be held there.
Instead, the airforce says it is looking at whether an alternative show could be held at RAF Scampton.
