In May 1965 Biggin Hill played host to the first ever public appearance by the Red Arrows and, now in their 50th display season, they returned to thrill spectators.
A team of nine BAE Hawk jets was led by squadron leader Jim Turner.

Before their evening performance, the Arrows greeted members of the public by driving around in eight MGB sports cars.
Supporting displays included the daring crews of the Breitling wingwalkers with their Stearman biplanes and the Blades aerobatic team directed by former Red Arrows pilot Andy Offer - flying four Extra EA-300 aircraft.
