    Background: AIRCRAFT ENTHUSIASTS GATHERED AT BIGGIN HILL IN KENT, ENGLAND, TODAY FOR THE START OF THE FOURTH INTERNATIONAL AIR FAIR THERE. THE SHOW WAS OPENED BY MR DOUGLAS BADER, THE FAMOUS BRITISH WARTIME FIGHTER PILOT AND AUTHOR.

    THIS YEAR'S BIGGIN HILL SHOW IS THE BIGGEST YET. EIGHTEEN NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL AIRLINES ARE REPRESENTED, WITH MORE THAN EIGHTY DIFFERENT TYPES OF AIRCRAFT FROM TWELVE COUNTRIES ON SHOW.

    THE BRITISH ROYAL NAVAL FLEET AIR ARM HAS ITS BUCCANEER MARK 2 AIRCRAFT AT THE SHOW TO GO THROUGH ITS INDIVIDUAL AEROBATIC DISPLAY, AND THERE'S ALSO THE TORPEDO-CARRYING FAIREY SWORDFISH, ONE OF THE OLDER MACHINES AT THE FAIR.

    THERE WAS A FRENCH AIR FORCE TEAM AT BIGGIN HILL TO GIVE A DISPLAY OF MILITARY FORMATION FLYING, AND TWO BELGIAN PILOTS DEMONSTRATING "MIRROR" FLYING, IN WHICH ONE AIRCRAFT FLIES UPSIDE DOWN CLOSE TO ITS PARTNER. AMONG THE SMALLER MACHINES AT THE SHOW, THERE WERE CESSANS IN ANOTHER AEROBATIC FLYPAST.

    AMONG THE MODERN AIRLINERS TO BE SEN, A VICKERS VC 10 PROVIDED THE BACKDROP FOR A SHOW OF SUMMER FASHIONS FROM A LONDON MANUFACTURER. THE CLOTHES -- RANGING FROM DASHING SHORTIE DRESSES WITH BARE MIDRIFFS TO BEACH SUITS -- WERE MODELLED BY BRITISH UNITED AIRWAYS HOSTESSES.
