Petition Keep the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team, the Red Arrows, in Lincolnshire
Lincolnshire has had strong links with the Royal Air Force since before its founding in 1918 and the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team has been synonymous with Lincolnshire for more than 30 years. The Red Arrows team should be kept in the county if RAF Scampton is to close.
Tourism contributes £1.3billion to the Lincolnshire economy and the county's aviation heritage attracts people from all over the world. This came to the fore in 2018 with the RAF Lincolnshire promotion to mark the county’s long history to the RAF at 100.
The Red Arrows team was formed in 1964 and has been based in Lincolnshire since 1983.
