LBC 97.3, London's number one commercial talk radio station, along with its rolling-news sister station LBC News 1152 will be bringing all the thrills, excitement (and noise) from the Biggin Hill International Air Fair this Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th June, as they broadcast live from the region's most exhilarating air show.

LBC News 1152 will be broadcasting full and extensive live coverage from the Air Fair starting at 7.00am on Saturday and finishing at 7.00pm on Sunday. There will be live hourly updates on LBC 97.3 and on Saturday from 6.00pm - 7.00pm, there will be a special highlights show, simulcast on both radio stations. The weekend's coverage will include live action over the two days, plus exclusive interviews with pilots, aircrews and organisers from the show. A team of nearly 30 LBC presenters, producers and technicians is involved in producing more than 24 hours of live entertainment from the Air Fair.

The History Channel Biggin Hill Air Fair takes place on Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th June. Once again, the RAF has given Biggin Hill Priority 1 status which means that there will be more RAF aircraft both in the air and on the ground. Highlights of the weekend include the awesome Westland Agusta Apache attack helicopter making its Biggin Hill debut, the Avro Vulcan B2 V-bomber, the London Air Ambulance and the UK debut appearance by the Indian Air Force Helicopter Display Team.

Jonathan Richards, Programme Director, LBC 97.3 and LBC News 1152 said: "LBC is all about bringing stories to Londoners, and with every aircraft and pilot that displays, there'll be a story to tell - we're delighted to be associated with the International Air Fair and really looking forward to bringing the excitement and spectacle of the show to our listeners".

Exclusive interviews with pilots and aircrews, plus the special highlights show are available as podcasts on the LBC Plus pages of the station's website - www.lbc.co.uk
