Biggin Hill in Kent is a very famous fighter station and on November 2nd, 1939, one of its resident Squadrons
claimed the first enemy aircraft of the war when it shot down a Dornier Do 17. Biggin Hill played a
major role in the Battle of Britain during World War Two.|
The last 'International Air Fair' was held at Biggin Hill in 2010. A new format of an Open House Air Day at Biggin Hill Airport replaced this event in 2011. Biggin Hill 'Festival of Flight' took place in 2014 and will do so again in 2015.
