Ecclestone buys legendary RAF base
In recent years Biggin Hill has been an important center for private aviation and Ecclestone's private jets are based there. Biggin Hill's old hangars have also housed Bernie's large private car collection and the airfield has also become the home of FOCA Television - which is expanding fast with the arrival of digital TV in F1. If the sale is successful Biggin Hill could become the hub of all FOCA activities in the future.
