Last updated: June 27, 2017 at 15:39 pm

Today, Blackbushe is a thriving hub for general and business aviation. However it started out as RAF Hartford Bridge 75 years ago. To mark this milestone anniversary, Blackbushe Airport will host the ‘Festival of Flight’ – Two fantastic family days that will appeal to all, not just the flying enthusiasts.

No less than three choirs, the ‘Rock Choir’, ‘Military Wives Choir’, and ‘Champagne at the Blitz’ will be providing rousing entertainment on the ground, while in the air aircraft ranging from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight’s Lancaster, to fighters such as the Spitfire and Mustang, Breitling Wing Walkers, gliders, sky diving and helicopters will fill our sky with iconic sights and sounds. Many historic and interesting aircraft will also fill the static park, while the exhibition area is bound to provide interest for all ages.  The “Children’s’ Zone” will provide the entertainment younger visitors may seek.
