On Saturday 29th September, we ran an Air Smiles Day at London Biggin Hill Airport for the Illsley Family. Everyone spent the morning with the Airport Fire Service, who put on a fantastic display of their equipment. After lunch, the family were given a tour of the Biggin Hill Heritage Hangar and taken up for a unique flight in the Airvan. Whilst in flight, the Spitfire made an appearance outside the window – such a special experience for the family! Archie & Charlie also received a very special message from Ben Murphy, Red Bull Air Race pilot, former leader of the RAF Red Arrows and Head of the Blades Aerobatic & Race Teams – the boys adore Ben, so this certainly put some smiles on their faces too!

The event was sponsored by one of our individual supporters; we’re so thankful to Norman for enabling us to make this day happen. A big thank you to everyone involved with this event too – London Biggin Hill Airport, Biggin Hill Heritage Hangar, Airport Fire Service, Peter – pilot, Mike – photographer, the Lookout CafĂ© and Ben Murphy – we really appreciate all your kindness, generosity and continued support with our Air Smiles Days.

This video highlights the day, showing those smiling faces in action! A big thank you to Peter Brown from Baywindow Creative ( for shooting and editing this video for us – what a wonderful memoir of the day for everyone!
