The Red Arrows aerobatics team could move from their base at RAF Scampton, according to the head of the air force.

Air Chief Marshal Sir Glenn Torpey said he hoped the elite flyers would remain in Lincolnshire and a decision was expected to be made in 2008.

There has been speculation that the team may move as part of a review currently being carried out by the Ministry of Defence (MoD).

ACM Torpey said RAF Waddington was a possible location for the flyers.

He said the unit were a “complex operation to run” because they needed to practice three times a day when preparing for a touring season.

“What we’re doing is looking at the most appropriate base for the Red Arrows. There are a number of options… and Waddington is one of them.

“They may move but we haven’t decided the best location for them at the moment but they will be staying in Lincolnshire, I would hope.”
