Published: 03 Mar 2017
The following is a joint statement by Scampton Airshow and the Royal International Air Tattoo following publication of the Air Accident Investigation Branch (AAIB) final report into the Shoreham Airshow tragedy on August 22, 2015.
The organisers of the Royal International Air Tattoo and the Scampton Airshow welcome the publication of the final AAIB Investigation report into the Shoreham Airshow tragedy and hope it helps bring some closure to all those affected.
We will now need time to study the report in detail and reflect on its contents.
Safety is and always has been our No1 priority, both in the air and on the ground.
We are very proud of our safety record and work throughout the year with all the relevant authorities to make sure we have taken every reasonable measure towards running a safe airshow.
Since the events of August 22, 2015, we have carried out a thorough review of all our processes surrounding air display flying and have subjected them to external scrutiny.
We comply with all relevant regulations relating to UK air displays and, in a number of areas, we exceed the requirements.
