Each year the BBMF is subject to a Public Display Approval (PDA) process, without which there could be no public displays by the Flight’s aircraft and pilots. Normally, the PDA occurs on a single day, but this year, due to the vagaries of the British weather and some aircraft unserviceabilities, the PDA will be spread across three.
The members’ ballot prize for April is a true ‘money-can’t-buy’ chance of a lifetime. One lucky Club member will experience a day at the BBMF on one of the planned weekend flying days during the display season.
It may not be the most beautiful or photogenic of structures but the new SSI SCHAEFER mezzanine storage facility, built to the BBMF’s own specifications inside its hangar at RAF Coningsby, will make a major difference to the Flight. Most importantly, it has been funded entirely by the RAF Memorial Flight Official Club.
