I can't remember what the tickets were selling for but I know they were more than Waddington was, and considering they advertised the fact that the air show would be smaller I'm not surprised they didn't sell as many as they thought they might.

I wonder if manpower made a difference to the expenditure too. They used RAF Waddington man power for the Waddington show but there isn't that available at Scampton.

It is a shame as Lincolnshire is well known for it's aviation and in the year of 100th RAF anniversary it is a blow.
