Veterans Day at Biggin Hill Heritage Hangar

On Wednesday 18th May, our friends at Biggin Hill Heritage Hangar hosted one of their infamous Veterans Days. The special event saw the largest gathering of veterans at Biggin Hill for some time, with attendees having an incredible combined age of over 1000 years!

Amongst the distinguished guests were 101 year old, World War Two veteran Colin Bell DFC AE FRICS, who flew on operations as a Mosquito Bomber Pilot, and Jane Britten, a Flight Mechanic who worked on Spitfires and Lancasters, pictured above with Alex Monk – the youngest Spitfire Pilot since the war.

We hope the veterans and their guests enjoyed their special day – these events are a wonderful way for us to honour our heritage and pay tribute to those who have served our country.
