On 18th August 1940, Biggin Hill came under attack from the Luftwaffe and this day became known as the “Hardest Day”, when the greatest loss of life was recorded by both sides during the Battle of Britain.

The commemoration will honour those lost during the Battle of Britain which lasted throughout the Summer of 1940 and was the first major battle fought entirely in the air.

Throughout the day, three flight formations will take place including the Hamlyn flight which will see eight aircraft fly over Sevenoaks, Yalding, Ashford, the former RAF Hawkinge with a special salute over the Battle of Britain Memorial at Capel-Le-Ferne on the white cliffs of Dover.
