We are delighted to announce that the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight are once again booked to give us a thrilling flypast. Last year we were treated to a superb display from a Spitfire and a Hurricane, chasing each other above the castle grounds.
This year the Memorial Flight have agreed to a flypast by a Spitfire. Weather and Serviceability permitting, this will provide us with a most memorable occasion.
The collection of historic aircraft which forms part of the nation’s heritage, is based at RAF Coningsby. Although probably best known for the Lancaster, Hurricane and Spitfire, the flight also features a Dacota and two Chipmunks. For more details on this amazing collection of aircraft, the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight website has just been re-launched. www.raf.mod.uk/bbmf/
