    Leading defence company sponsors new RAF Scampton Airshow

    Northrop Grumman has pledged its support to the 2017 airshow by becoming its title sponsor.

    The show will be held on September 9 and 10 at the legendary home of the RAF aerobatic display team the Red Arrows.

    Airshow director Paul Sall said he was confident that the sponsorship agreement with Northrop Grumman would prove mutually-beneficial as the new event begins to establish itself as a key player within the UK's airshow industry.

    Bad luck Scampton boys and girls, welcome to the never-ending crap fest that is sorting out and working on an air show. I'm sure the underworked personnel of Waddington will be only too pleased to lend a hand.

      I wouldn't have thought Scampton alone would have the manpower resources to host an airshow?

        And you're entirely correct, it's a small Station located on one of the worst roads in Lincolnshire. My comment was that undoubtedly the poor schmucks of Waddo would be dragged up there to 'help out'. I spent 4 years at Waddo and the air show was one of the biggest pains in the arse we had to endure.

          I'd suggest that the manpower will likely have to be bussed across Lincoln before the crowds arrive and after they leave, unless of course a campsite is erected so that trainees from cranwell can carry out the work, a bit like the cosford trainees at fairford.

                I was reassured just a short while ago by the person named above that manning would not be an issue and like RIAT it would depend mainly on an army of enthusiastic volunteers.

                  Course those companies throw their weight behind these things.

                  I see Arms trade show with free labour provided by the RAF.
