Biggin Hill 2017 Arrivals day..

Post by POD »

I have been discussing the possibility of arranging a spotters/photographers day at Biggin Hill on Friday 18th August, the day prior to the show weekend....

Is there interest out there? There is a great line up for the show, both statics and flying...Most of which are expected to arrive on the Friday....
On top of that there will be several display items coming and going during the day that are displaying at Eastbourne, along with the regular airport traffic...

Initial discussions indicate an area would be provided giving opportunities to photograph aircraft on the main runway, and adjoining taxiway........

Tickets will be strictly limited , to probably in the region of 200......

Thoughts?

Kev, I would be another keen attendee, pending the positioning of the enclosure to make the best of the light for aircraft arriving for the static display. :up:
