Scampton Air Show Arrivals / Departures

Post by F4Weasel » Tue Aug 22, 2017 2:54 pm

Hi

Anyone have info on the fly in days?

Air show website http://scamptonairshow.com/airshow/visi ... ow-tickets

“Open to view arrivals (Thursday and Friday) and departures (Mon). Monday Park and View available online until midnight on 10 September and on the gate which opens at 7.30am.”

Departures may be the best option if there is no definitive listing?

Thanks

Seen a post in the heads up section on the Belgian F16, but nothing else.

Looks as though 2x Gr4 due and 2x Chipmunks due.

in the days of social media, there is so much info out there, on so many different platforms, i guess he chose to post on twitter alone to get to a wider audience.

Feel free to contact the poster on twitter and ask him to put his info on here.

Any idea what that leaves for arrival tomorrow? Just spent 6 hours sat there to see about 6 planes... 2 of those were Red Arrows so they shouldn't really count as they live there!

Not like Waddington, you park your car and then go into the viewing area. On the airshow map http://scamptonairshow.com/assets/pages ... 290817.pdf it is pretty much the box just below where it says "Green Customer Entry Point" on the right hand side. Seemed a pretty good spot for catching the planes as they land on Runway 22. Don't slate me if that's not the right runway number, I'm new to this game :)
