In September, RAF Scampton in Lincolnshire opened its gates to the public for the Scampton Airshow. More than 50,000 people attended the two-day event which attracted 104 aircraft - 41 in the flying display and 63 in the static line-up. Expertly recorded in high definition, 4k and powerful telephoto lenses we’ll relive the pick of the action in this excellent DVD.
Highlights include a display by a Boeing 727 oil spill response aircraft which demonstrated its environmental capabilities by dramatically spraying the runway with water. There was also a special joint flypast by the Red Arrows and an RAF Sentinel. Also captured was an evocative and moving flypast by the RAF Battle of Britain Memorial Flight Lancaster, Spitfire and Hurricane.
International participation includes stunning fast jet displays by a French Air Force Alpha Jet and Belgian Air Component F-16. A US Air Force KC-135 Stratotanker from the New Hampshire Air National Guard performed a special flypast from its deployed base at Geilenkirchen, in Germany.
The airshow climaxes with a dynamic Typhoon display, performed by Flt Lt Ryan Lawton from 29 Sqn based at nearby RAF Coningsby.
