The potential traffic logistics with Scampton would be horrendous.
Waddington was bad enough with the A15 and A607 being choked (I had direct working with the Police for the weekends), just image the chaos on the A15 from north of Caenby Corner all the way to the A46 Bypass with the Scampton option.
That weekend would make The M25 look positively troublefree...

I do miss my time in the RAF, but every month it reminds me how great it was with a lovely big cheque

I don't believe there will ever be an air show at Scampton.

edit because I forgot where Scampton was - :Oops:

This will be a nightmare to get to as mentioned in a previous post. Not sure how the visitor numbers compare with the Lincolnshire show but the traffic for that is really bad!

Sorry for double post...Lincolnshire show attendance over the two days 60000, the last waddington air show 130000. I would hope they use the same travel plans for the air show as they do for the Lincolnshire show? If so my plan will be train to Lincoln and use the shuttle bus service,which for the Lincolnshire show is only a five minute walk from the train station.

Time to open a new section called Scampton Airshow, with an R.I.P. to the Waddington one.

It's on the list of changes to be made to the forum, it just needs one of the Admin to do their magic in the background. I'll raise the point again.
RAF Tornados left in service = 28 :( 315 ish days left in service
GR4 =25, GR4(T) =3
