The airfield is a thriving commercial airport today offering facilities to local and international customers. Despite this it has never lost sight of its heritage and links with the Royal Air Force. Air Displays International, the company behind the show, are proud to be organising the 48th annual Air Fair, sponsored by HISTORY, which will be held on the 26th and 27th June 2010.

The International Air Fair is a mix of historic aircraft and modern military jets. Air Displays International established the famous Biggin Hill International Air Fair back in 1963. The ensuing years saw the Air Fair build a reputation for providing an excitement packed day out for the enthusiasts and the general public alike. Today the event is the biggest privately organised air show in Europe. The flying displays will include the Red Arrows and vintage aircraft including Spitfires and Hurricanes. There are some modern machines too like the Harrier, Tornado and Hercules. It's not all about airborne displays either. There are plenty of static sights to keep you occupied as well, including live music, vintage cars and a funfair.

The town of Biggin Hill's first link with aviation stretches back to 1915 when the Royal Flying Corps established an aerodrome on one of the highest points in London. Since the1920s air shows have been held at the site with the only break being 1939-45, no other venue can boast such a long history of air shows in the world.

The show this year they will be commemorating the 70th anniversary of the Battle of Britain. It's only fitting that this should happen at the most famous Royal Air Force WWII fighter station of all.
