This colour film with voice-over shows highlights of the Biggin Hill Air Show in September 1971, on the anniversary of the Battle of Britain. Shots of aircraft and display teams are accompanied by a voice-over narration explaining the types of aircraft on display and general information about the event.
The film opens with cars arriving and parking in a field adjacent to the airfield. People mill around looking at the static displays of RAF aircraft. Mixed shots follow of an RAF helicopter and Cessna 172 aircraft 'G-AYUV' landing on an airfield.
The film then shows highlights of a series of parades that pass the camera, including the Kent wing of a military band, with working dog mascots dressed in regiment colours. Highlights of the Rothman Air Display Team in mid display follow, with 'Stampe SV4C' planes in 'Upward Burst', 'Swiss Roll' and 'Double Mirror' movements, followed by shots of several film and television crews recording the action.
The film-maker captures a series of mixed close-ups of heritage WWI planes, parked on the display field including a Swordfish, Spitfire, Lancaster Bomber, Fournier RF4D (G-AWEK), Hercules, Avro Vulcan and an airbourne Tiger Moth in flight with a wing-walker.
The film ends with people on their way to the parking field to drive home concluding with a static RAF themed roundel title that reads 'The End'.
