Battle of Britain
Memorial Flight

by David Hannant




Last Saturday, May 5, the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight held an open day at Duxford and took all their aircraft.

The main attraction was the newly painted Lancaster which, by some coincidence, has been painted in the markings that we put on one of the Lancasters on an Xtradecal sheet a couple of years ago, X05572.



Real life follows the models!

They also hoped to fly the entire formation for the first time ever, and did - the Lancaster, 2 Hurricanes and 5 Spitfires.



Normally it is the Lancaster with a couple of fighters, so to see all seven was an amazing sight.



The sound of 8 Merlins and 3 Griffons will never be forgotten.
