For almost half a century, Biggin Hill was the scene of one of the world’s best-loved and longest-running air shows. An ex-RAF airfield, it was already well-known as the site from which Spitfires and Hurricanes were launched during the Second World War. Almost two decades after the war, its fame skyrocketed with the introduction of the International Air Fair, staged between 1963 and 2010.
It was an innovative event, always of the highest calibre. Although sometimes afflicted by terrible weather and tragedy, the Biggin Hill International Air Fair was keenly attended by aircraft enthusiasts and families alike. From its outset, the event inspired countless visitors to pursue a career in aviation.
The History of the Biggin Hill International Air Fair will ignite many fond memories. With incredible detail of every show held over its illustrious life, accompanied by a host of nostalgic and previously unpublished high-quality images, this publication tells the story of this legendary air fair and the stars who supplied entertaining and historic performances there.
