RAF Wittering misses out on becoming home to the Red Arrows

The MOD has decided their new home will be RAF Waddington

RAF Wittering has missed out on being the new home for the Red Arrows.

The Ministry of defence has decided the famous aerobatic team will make the short trip from current base RAF Scampton to nearby RAF Waddington.

Scampton is due to close in 2022 which led to a review into where the Red Arrows should go.

It's understood RAF Wittering was one of the bases under consideration but the MOD says after careful assessment they decided Waddington was the safest and best option.
