Scampton Airshow - Thursday and Friday arrivals days

A new airshow this year at RAF Scampton, which is just down the road for us. We decided to go for the arrivals day tickets at £5 each, bargain!  Thursday was a really slow day with just 5 planes (and 2 of those were Red Arrows that are based at Scampton) in 6 hours. Friday was a total contrast with non stop planes arriving from 8.30am to 5pm, it was a fantastic day, despite the half hour torrential rain. We were lucky to be sitting next to a few enthusiasts that knew every plane plus they were from Scunthorpe so the banter and chat soon flowed !  A brilliant day with a fish and chip tea from Scotter on the way home and then on to Wayne and Clare's for a nice bottle of Malbec !
