He said: "To be supported by one of the leading defence and security suppliers in Europe is a huge vote of confidence in our new airshow. Its backing not only underlines the value of the airshow but it also reinforces the airshow's potential for delivering a first class regional event that will benefit visitors and businesses alike.

"We are very excited to be working with Northrop Grumman at the Scampton Airshow and to building a long and successful relationship."
