Biggin Hill Airshow

Post by Tim73 » Thu May 28, 2009 2:55 am

HI, just wondering if any one would be interested in a club display at the Biggin Hill airshow next month.

I know it's a bit short notice but i know the organisers and might be able to get us a spot .

It is a quality day out and you do get quite a few car club's going.

What do you think???????

I'm planning on going but haven't bought a ticket yet.

Do we get to bypass the main carpark and park on the display? If so that's reason in and of itself - getting in and out of that carpark is a nightmare!
