02 Oct WINNERS OF LONDON BIGGIN HILL AIRPORT PHOTO COMPETITION ANNOUNCED
London – 02 October 2017:
The winner of the London Biggin Hill Airport Photography Competition 2017 is Steve Cullum from Meopham, Kent, whose entry captured the breath-taking aerobatics of this year’s Red Arrow display at the Festival of Flight.
The winner of the under-16s group was Summer Garner, 15, of Gravesend, Kent, who took a fantastic picture of a historic Royal Aircraft Factory BE.2c Replica, which was flown to commemorate the hundredth anniversary of Biggin Hill Airport.
Ms Garner and Mr Cullum have each won a flying lesson and press pass to the 2018 Festival of Flight. Mr Cullum said, “I had a great day at Biggin Hill and saw some amazing displays, especially the Red Arrows. The crowd’s favourite gave another brilliant show and I was fortunate enough to be in the right place to capture a spectacular pass.”
Bethany Russell, of Biggin Hill Airport, said: “Thanks to all entrants to this year’s photo competition. As ever, the calibre was very high and we hope everybody had fun capturing these shots”.
The photographs will be displayed in The Lookout coffee shop at the airport until the New Year, at which point they will be presented to their respective finalists.
