  • Absolutely fantastic. Weather wasn't too great...British weather! Didn't spoil it as the atmosphere was pleasent and all staff and still holders were friendly. The air show itself was amazing. A must see venue.
  • Saturday display was top notch. Arrived by coach at 09.30 and spent the next hour going around in circles until traffic control decided where our coach (and about twenty others) could park. Got us off to a bad start but enjoyed the rest of the day.
  • Hello this is me in my in my flight suit posing for pictures now getting ready for upgrade to be flight commander so everybody please stand to attention
  • Having gone to Waddington for years to their airshow we decided to give Scampton a try and really wish we had not bothered!! The gaps between the displays was poor and the aircraft their was very limited too, especially after the superb displays we have seen at Waddington in the past. However the worst part was the hospitality. We paid £50 each for the upgrade to the Lincolnshire Garden and really wish we had not bothered. For the extra we were given a buffet lunch which consisted of ONE piece of ham, ONE pork pie, ONE roll of bread, ONE spoon of coronation chicken etc (they had students dishing out the lunch who had clearly been told to limit the portions). Once we had received our lunch we were then expected to sit on plastic chairs (outside in the horrendous cold wind) balancing a plastic tray on our knee to eat our lunch!!! Tea, coffee and any cakes were all payable at an extra cost!! At Waddington we had an indoor marquee to eat our lunch in (we were also given bacon rolls for breakfast, and excellent UNLIMITED lunch AND afternoon tea (all with unlimited free tea and coffee) for the same price. Unless Scampton SERIOUSLY improve their shows, and particularly their hospitality packages, we for one will not be returning next year.
  • Really enjoyed 1st airshow at Raf Scampton some things need improvement but i am sure they will sort it out for future airshows
