            Hello, please could you tell me if there is any planes in Kent that are offering the ash scattering services? We lost my grandad at the beginning of the pandemic and he was is the RAF and a huge aeroplane enthusiast. We would like to honour his last wish. We have no plane type specifics so would appreciate any aeroplane and pilot that is able to do this in Kent. Many thanks in advance

              Hi Natalie

              Not for the foreseeable I suspect. We do have options that are not in Kent, or you could speak to Biggin Hill Airfield directly to see if they can assist.
