Even if you have been to a recent Festival of Flight at Biggin Hill, you will not have seen a show like the one promised for this August 19th - 20th.

The show has been stretched to two days and includes both the British and the French national aerobatic teams (French on the 20th only). In fact, this is the only airshow in the UK where the Patrouille de France will display this year. (... continued below the pictures)

Other show-stoppers from abroad are the Belgian F-16 and a trio from Czechoslovakia - the mighty Gripen and a pair of helicopters: the Mi-17 and the Mi-35.

Voted the star of many shows, the RAF's Chinook will demonstrate manoeuvres you never thought were possible, showing the agility of this flying workhorse. Other family favourites, the Breitling Wingwalkers, will be there to thrill and if you want to see really close flying by an aerobatic duo then don't miss the Trig Team.

Second World Warbirds will be there aplenty. As well as the mighty Lancaster with its fighter escort there will be another Hurricane and Spitfire; a couple of bombers: B-17 'Sally B' and a B-25 from the Royal Netherlands Historic Flight.

Going back even further in time, the Great War Display Team will demonstrate German and allied flying machines of the First World War.

For something completely different, the Vietnam-era Bronco is always a crowd pleaser and the G-Force Aerobatics 'Little and Large' pair have to be seen to be believed: a full sized Extra 300 flying aerobatic sequences with a 41% model of the same plane.

As well as the Gripen and the F-16; on Sunday the RAF's Typhoon will be bringing on the noise in the sublime hands of this year's display pilot, Flight Lieutenant Ryan Lawton.

And perhaps that is not all. Even more displays and static aircraft may yet be announced - and you can see Saturday's show for free if you win our competition. So for further updates keep an eye on the Festival of Flight web site, Facebook Page or Twitter Account, or on the British Airshows preview, where you will also find information about local accommodation, travel and weather prospects.
