"The RAF is making every effort to resolve these issues, but it is regretted that this work will mean that it will not be possible to hold an air show at RAF Scampton until 2017 at the earliest."

Indeed, not until 2017 at the earliest as my post states. It's far from certain....

I doubt very much it will happen and actually feel the news is designed to deflect the fall out of losing Waddington.

I can't see anyway they will spent money on work required just to hold an air show unless they have something else planned for Scampton that requires that work.
