Battle of Britain – 70 years On

This year’s main themed event held on 8th August was a major success with some 1,280 visitors in attendance. Vera Lynn Principal guests were our Patron, The Duke of Richmond, accompanied by The Duchess, and we were also honoured to welcome Dame Vera Lynn, her daughter and son-in-law. Five aircraft – Harvard, Hurricane, Spitfire, Dakota and Stearman Biplane gave excellent flying displays in bright sunshine during the afternoon.
