Biggin Hill Air Show

The RAF Aerobatic Team ‘The Red Arrows’ will top the bill at Biggin Hill’s inaugural Festival of Flight at the airport on Saturday 14 June.

Returning to the airfield where they performed their first public display in the UK in May 1965, the 2014 team of nine BAE Hawk jets led by Squadron Leader Jim Turner will fly a full display for Festival spectators to mark the launch of their 50th display season.

Supporting items in the air include the daring crews of the Breitling Team of wingwalkers with their Stearman biplanes; the Blades aerobatic team directed by former Red Arrows team leader Andy Offer and three other former team members. 

The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight will display and a Spitfire will stage an aerial dogfight with Messerschmitt Bf 109 of the wartime Luftwaffe.  The well-known Boeing B17 Flying Fortress is making a flying appearance. 

The Model Zone will present cars, boats and planes.  A large boating lake will feature radio-controlled warships, liners and boats while the model aircraft park will have several well-known types as large models, each with a flying capability.  Radio-controlled car racing is also on the model agenda. Book early as there is a crowd capacity limit.  www.bhfof.com
