Humberside Big Wing (August 12-13, Humberside, United kingdom)
To honor Britain on the 75th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain, HFF will continue the summer campaign of its Mk. IXe Spitfire at a series of world-class flying events. The Humberside Big Wing reminds us that the Battle of Britain began in the Midlands, then moved south, primarily to Kent and London. Following Humberside, the HFF Spitfire also will appear at the RAFA Shoreham Airshow in Sussex (August 22-23), Goodwood Revival at West Sussex (September 11-13), South of England Battle of Britain Day Sortie (September 15th), and close with the Battle of Britain Anniversary Airshow at Duxford (September 19-20). Should your summer travel include one of these events, please advise HFF so we can meet you and share special passes.
Comox Air Show (August 15, Comox, B.C.)
An open house at the most important Canadian air base on the west coast, this show features the Snowbirds, the national aerobatic team of the Canadian military. An F-18 demonstration, aerobatic displays and HFFs B-25 “Grumpy” round out the program. Visit www.comoxairshow.ca for more information.
