Details of an air show’s return have been announced.

London Biggin Hill’s Festival of Flight will take place on August 18 and 19, 2018. Invitations to participate have been extended to both The Red Arrows and the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.

The festival will commemorate the RAF’s centenary year, as well as look to the next 100 years of aviation by encouraging young people to pursue careers in the industry. London Biggin Hill’s proposal to found the London Aerospace & Technology College will be showcased during the event.

Managing director Will Curtis said: “It is fitting that our Festival of Flight should be celebrating both RAF100 and commemorating ‘The Hardest Day’ of the Battle of Britain, given the decisive role Biggin Hill played for the RAF during the Second World War.

“There are few sights or sounds in aviation that are able to generate the same powerful emotions as those of the iconic Supermarine Spitfire and Hawker Hurricane fighters, and we look forward to seeing and hearing them perform once again at the Festival of Flight.”
