    Background: IT'S A BIG WEEKEND FOR BRITISH AVIATION ENTHUSIASTS. BIG JETS, MEDIUM-SIZE TURBO-PROPS, LIGHT AIRCRAFT -- THEY'RE ALL ON SHOW AT THE INTERNATIONAL AIR FAIR IN KENT. AND THOUSANDS OF VISITORS ARE EXPECTED TO TURN UP TO HAVE A CLOSE LOOK AT THEM.

    SCENE OF THE SHOW IS BIGGIN HILL, WHICH MADE ITS NAME IN WORLD WAR TWO AS THE ROYAL AIR FORCE'S MOST FAMOUS FIGHTER STATION. FILM TAKES A LOOK AT SOME OF THE HIGHLIGHTS.

    FROM MUNICH FOR THE SHOW IS THE DORNIER DO-28 AND ALL-PURPOSE LIGHT AIRCRAFT WHICH CAN CARRY UP TO SEVEN PASSENGERS AT A CRUISING SPEED OF 150 MILES (240 KMS) AS HOUR. AN UNUSUAL FEATURE OF THIS NIPPY LITTLE MODEL IS THAT IT HAS A HIGH WING WITH ITS TWIN ENGINES SLUNG BENEATH THE FORWARD FUSELAGE.

    ANOTHER WEST GERMAN EXHIBIT IS THE SINGLE-ENGINED BOLKOW JUNIOR, A TWO-SEATER WHICH CAN BUZZ ALONG AT 130 MILES (208 KMS) AN HOUR.

    FROM BULGARIA, A SOVIET-BUILT ILYUSHIN IL-18 TOUCHED DOWN TODAY (FRIDAY) - AND MADE ITS PRESENCE FELT IMMEDIATELY. THE BACK-BLAST FROM ITS TURBO-PROP ENGINES WHIPPED HOT DOGS FROM A STALL, CAUSING PEOPLE TO SCATTER IN ALL DIRECTIONS.

    THE FOUR-ENGINED IL-18 WAS CARRYING MR. LAZAR BELOUHOV, THE BULGARIAN CHIEF OF CIVIL AVIATION, WHO IS IN BRITAIN TO DISCUSS THE POSSIBILITY OF OPENING A DIRECT AIR LINK BETWEEN LONDON AND SOFIA.

    HE WAS GIVEN A WARM WELCOME; SO WAS THE BULGARIAN AIR HOSTESS, WHO WAS PRESENTED WITH AS SPRIG OF HEATHER BY A BRITISH HOSTESS.

    FINALLY, ON FILM, A FRENCH AIRCRAFT -- THE SCINTEX-AVIATION SUPER EMERAUDE, A SINGLE-ENGINED TWO-SEATER WHICH CAN CRUISE COMFORTABLY AT 124 MILES (200 KMS) AN HOUR.

    (FILM DOES NOT SHOW THE HOT DOG INCIDENT).
