Red Arrows give stellar performance

War veterans looked on as the Red Arrows and Spitfires graced the skies at the Biggin Hill Airport Festival of Flight this afternoon.

Thousands upon thousands of people watched delighted as the famous aerobatic display team staged an impressive show, at one point flying together with a group of Spitfires.

Although the weather prevented some aircraft from attending – including, unfortunately, the Boeing B-17 Sally B - there was still plenty to see, with displays from a Tornado, a Hurricane, a Kittyhawk and a Messerschmitt.

Other attractions included wingwalkers, police dogs, a vintage tea room and author Richard Smith, who was signing copies of his new book on the airfield’s role in the Battle of Britain, RAF Biggin Hill 1939-1940.
