100 years of the Royal Air Force
The 2018 Biggin Hill Festival of Flight Air Display commemorates the world’s first independent Air Force, born in the heat of battle during World War One.
From defending the army in their trenches, to defending the civilian population in their beds; from taking the attack to the heart of the enemy, to delivering humanitarian relief; from Cold War deterrence to recent operations in the Middle East – the RAF has demonstrated unwavering commitment and is rightly recognized as one of the most innovative, professional and progressive air forces in the world.
At the Biggin Hill Festival of Flight 2018 Air Display, we will honour the RAF of today and the men and woman who serve.
From the earliest biplanes to the fast jets of today’s RAF, the bond between men, women and their aircraft has not changed over the past 100 years.
The Hardest Day
On 18 August 1940, the Luftwaffe made an all-out effort to destroy Fighter Command. The air battles that took place on this day were amongst the largest aerial engagements in history. It was called The Hardest Day. At the Biggin Hill Festival of Flight 2018, exactly 78 years later, we will recreate this battle as we fill the sky with Spitfires and Hurricanes – an unforgettable sight and sound.
So, come and join us together with your classic, sports, motorbike or supercar as the Biggin Hill Festival of Flight commemorates 100 years of glorious RAF history in 2018.
The Biggin Hill Car and Bike Show is proud to stand alongside the Festival of Flight in 2018 honouring the RAF of today and the men and woman who serve.
