Plans for tourist attraction at RAF Scampton

There are hopes that a multi-million pound tourist attraction could be created at RAF Scampton in Lincolnshire.

The base is the home of the Red Arrows and could be turned into an aviation heritage centre, say bosses at Lincolnshire County Council. They say the plan is still in very early stages but could help ensure Scampton continues to be used as an RAF base, securing the Arrows' long-term future.

It is envisaged regular air shows, a museum, exhibitions and and a hotel would draw in thousands of visitors from around world.
