Not just the Reds....

If Scampton did exist purely for the Reds it would indeed be quite an extravagance. However Scampton doubles as the Relief Landing Ground for RAF Cranwell and the many training aircraft stationed there: the Cranwell circuit hasn't the capacity to fulfill all the training requirements of such a large number of aircraft so Scampton is used to provide and extra circuit area.
