Every year Biggin Hill hosts one of the most famous events on the global aviation calendar - The International Air Fair. The event attracts up to 100,000 people to the Airport, and is the largest privately run Air Show in Europe. It has been an annual occurrence since 1963. This makes the show that has just taken place in June 2009 the forty seventh in an unbroken run. A cavalcade of aircraft spanning almost 100 years of the history of aviation was on show in the air and on the ground.
