RAF Kenley Air Day 2010 took place on Saturday 14th August to commemorate the 70th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain. Organisers estimated 6000 people attended throughout the day to enjoy The Great War Display Team, various aircraft landing for a static display, Croydon Airport Model Flying Club, MG Car Pageant and The Breitling Wing Walkers. Unfortunately because of the appalling weather the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight with a Spitfire, Hurricane and Lancaster could not take place.

Guest of Honour was Flt Lt William Walker who was posted to Kenley on 19th August 1940 the day after the Luftwaffe visited, signed programmes and chatted to visitors about his time at Kenley. Many veterans attended this special day recalling their experiences to visitors.
