BBMF Weekend: 6th/7th July, Blackbushe Airport
The Royal Air Force Battle of Britain Memorial Flight is an iconic commemoration of the both the individuals and the aircraft that have made up the rich history of the RAF. With a unique collection of historical aircraft, including the famous Spitfire, Lancaster and Hurricane, BBMF represents the RAF motto in all that it does – Lest We Forget.
The aircraft are regularly seen at events commemorating World War II, upon British State occasions, notably the Trooping the Colour celebrating Queen Elizabeth II's birthday and at air displays throughout the United Kingdom and Europe. Now, we are also able to offer a taste of the BBMF to you from the Aerobility HQ at Blackbushe airport!
On Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th July, the BBMF will be basing one of their prized Spitfires at Blackbushe. In a show of generosity, they have very kindly made the Spitfire available to friends of Aerobility – just to have a look, not to fly unfortunately! The Spitfire will be available for viewings with the BBMF team between 16.30-18.30 on Saturday 6th and between 10.30-12.30 on Sunday 7th. Weather permitting, we should see the Spitfire fly once or twice.
Alongside the exciting opportunity to get up close and personal with the Spitfire, we will be offering flights in our very own PA-28 Simulator to get your flying skills up to speed. On Saturday afternoon, we will also be running an aviation-themed baking competition – so get your creative baking mitts on and start experimenting! All cakes will be available for a small donation, so they’ll need to taste as good as they look…
Don’t miss out on this amazing opportunity – get it in your diary now! We look forward to seeing you there!
