Awe-Inspiring Fly Over

As well as a host of motorsport action, the Chateau Impney Hill Climb will also feature spectacular Fly Overs.

We were thrilled to welcome the RAF Battle of Britain Memorial Flights to Chateau Impney at this year's Hill Climb. The Lancaster Bomber is the most famous and sucessful RAF heavy bomber of World War Two and we were delighted that it performed a fly-over at the 2017 Chateau Impney Hill Climb. Alongside this fantastic piece of machinery, we experienced the magnificent Red Arrows fly-over on the Saturday afternoon. 

We were lucky enough to witness awe-inspiring air displays on both days of the 2016 Chateau Impney Hill Climb. The RAF Battle of Britain Memorial Flight was launched following World War II to ensure that the last remaining examples of the Hurricane and Spitfire would be kept in the air. We were lucky enough to receive fly pasts from both of these legendary fighters across the weekend. On the Sunday, during the lunctime break, The Red Devils, the official display team of the Parachute Regiment, jumped from approx 13,000ft above ground, performing a number of impressive manoeuvres before pulling the chutes open to land in front of the crowds. 

On both days of the 2015 Chateau Impney Hill Climb, we were proud to present Rich Goodwin and his Pitts Special S2S 'Muscle Biplane'. Rich, a former Royal Air Force pilot, had extensively modified his distinctive biplane to give it enchanced capabilities, allowing him to perform a unique and extraordinary brand of aerobatics. Spectators enjoyed incredible moves such as the double-hammerhead, complete torque rolls, high-alpha passes and the amazing Tower of Power.

Please note that all air displays are subject to good weather and optimum flight conditions.
