RAF Scampton also extends into the neighbouring parishes of Aisthorpe and Brattleby.
Bulk fuel installation at National Grid Reference SK 96178 79958 close to the site of the former Aisthorpe House.
"RAF Scampton currently has one BFI (Bulk Fuel Installation) for aviation fuel, which is a former NATO installation (BFI 7).
Until closure in 1996, RAF Scampton was connected to the Government Pipeline Storage System (GPSS), which supplied AVTUR (F34) to BFI 7 from an underground pipeline running from a depot at Mistarton.
The fuel was premixed with corrosion and ice inhibiting chemicals before being pumped into the system.
The pipeline entered the site from the west from a spur of the main pipeline and connected to the PRE from where fuel was pumped directly to BFI 7 via an underground pipeline.
The pipeline was fitted with cathodic protection and was tested on a regular basis.
The pipeline is now disconnected and the on site section of pipeline running between the PRE to BFI 7 was removed in 1996.
At present, 18 000 litre bowsers travel by road from RAFC Cranwell to fill BFI 7 on a daily basis, having to cross the main runway at the 05 threshold to access the BFI"
