The winning snaps from this year’s Festival of Flight have been revealed - and both winners are from Gravesham.
Capturing the skies above Biggin Hill Airport at this year’s festival, the pair of snappers have won a flying lesson and a press pass to the 2018 Festival of Flight.
Steve Cullum, from Meopham, shot the aerobatics display from the Red Arrows display team, winning the competition overall.
He said: “I had a great day at Biggin Hill and saw some amazing displays, especially the Red Arrows. The crowd’s favourite gave another brilliant show and I was fortunate enough to be in the right place to capture a spectacular pass.”
Gravesend 15-year-old Summer Garner’s picture of a Royal Aircraft Factory BE.2c replica put her photography top of the under-16s category.
Bethany Russell, of Biggin Hill Airport, said: “Thanks to all entrants to this year’s photo competition. As ever, the calibre was very high and we hope everybody had fun capturing these shots”.
The photographs will be displayed in The Lookout coffee shop at the airport until the New Year, at which point they will be presented to their respective finalists.
