Also known as the Red Arrows. One of the worlds greatest aerobatic display teams is based at Scampton.
We are here to further the defence mission of the Royal Air Force both in the United Kingdom and overseas by helping to project air-power wherever it is needed.
There is more to RAF Scampton than the Red Arrows. One of only 2 Control and Reporting Centres that keeps a watchful eye on our skies 24/7 is also based at Scampton.
RAF Scampton has had a rich and varied history. Our most famous squadron is 617 also known as the Dambusters. Post-war Scampton was home to one of the United Kingdoms nuclear deterrents - the Blue Steel Missile.
