In the 75th year since the Battle of Britain was fought in the skies above southern England, the special commemoration of the role of ‘Churchill’s Few’ was staged here at the historic former RAF airfield, nowadays a busy international airport serving international business aviation as a gateway to Greater London and the City and proud home to the unique collection of Spitfires and a Hurricane of the Heritage Hangar.

Eighteen Spitfires and six Hurricanes gathered at Biggin Hill on Tuesday 18th August 2015, 75 years on to the day from the ‘hardest day’ of the 1940 air battle to honour the courageous pilots, engineers, armourers, operations staff and ground crews who faced constant attack from the Nazi Luftwaffe on that day and during that period.
