Biggin Hill is part of south east London, formerly known as Aperfield. It adopted the name Biggin Hill after the aerodrome which is close to the town, because of the heroic exploits of pilots based there during the Second World War. Today the London Biggin Hill airport is a busy regional airport, transformed from an RAF base and aerodrome. The airport will be celebrating on June 14th, to commemorate the Battle of Britian in 1940, and Supermarine Spitfires and Hawker Hurricanes will be in Britain’s skies once again.
Air display accidents
Unfortunately air displays can be scenes of tragedy. In 2009 over Bruntingthorpe Aerodrome, near Lutterworth, a disaster was averted, when a co-pilot managed to land a Victor away from a housing estate and the spectators who had gathered to watch at the aerodrome. The 1952 Farnborough Air Show crash when 31 people were killed and many more injured after a De Havilland 110 broke the sound barrier and then literally fell apart in the sky.

Solicitors in Biggin Hill
Although planes are one of the safest means of transport, accidents can happen. You may have scalding hot tea or coffee spilled on you by a member of the cabin crew, for example, and if you needed medical treatment for your scald, or burn, you may be able to file a claim against the operator of the plane, if you can find solicitors in Biggin Hill or elsewhere to help you build a case to prove that your injury was the fault of another person.
Airports can be dangerous, especially for the elderly and the very young. There have been some unfortunate accidents on escalators at airports, and people slip, trip and fall because hazard signs are not in place if a floor is wet, and so on.
