Passing of A Legend

Our condolences go out to the family of Ray Hanna who passed away last December. Ray’s association with Biggin Hill goes back over 40 years and he will be sadly missed by all of us.

Who can ever forget seeing him close the show each year in his Spitfire to the sound of the Last Post! The eyes of all of the crowd on the lone aircraft as Ray demonstrated the beauty and grace of the Spitfire as only he could, creating a remarkable emotion which will long be remembered.

There will be many Spitfires flying here at Biggin Hill in the coming years, but there will only be one Ray Hanna. Rest in peace with your son Mark and thank you for all of the memories you have given us.
