2020 marks the 80th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain. This is a massive anniversary to remember. There were countless airshows here in the UK in real life where this was to be the main theme of the shows. I alone was due to be going to seven different shows this year. However things took a different turn for everyone across the World. So I thought, if these commemorations can’t take place in real life, why not on Infinite Flight! So I’m hosting a massive Airshow to commemorate the 80th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain.

This event:

This event will be happening at at RAF Fairford on the 11th July
Now before anyone says anything, yes I know Fairford wasn’t involved in the BoB, however it is in Britain, and probably one of the largest quiet airfields around. I was hoping to hold it at Biggin Hill or Duxford, but due to a lack of spawn gates realised it wouldn’t be feasible.

This also means that there can now be a large spectator area so more people can enjoy the weekend!

The spectator area/ static display location

Flying participants will be assigned their own gates to spawn in on.

The reason I am separating the Flying Participants from the spectators is so that the flying acts have easy access to the runway.

Sure thing I’ll add you. Just a heads up if we require a slot if the timetable is filled up, then one of these slots will have to go to someone else, same for me too.

But until then, you’ll all good. I’ll add you now!
