To be called Tangmere 39 it will take place on Sunday, July 19th and current plans include a flying display starring a Hurricane – Britain’s most numerous fighter plane at the outbreak of the war and the type flown from Tangmere by 43, 145 and 601 squadrons in 1940 – plus other aircraft, static displays, period music provided by a live band, costumed re-enactment personnel and much more. Fuller detail will be provided nearer the time.
