Battle of Britain 70th Anniversary Fly-In RAF Northolt

Post by Graf Zeppelin »

A fly-In of classic aircraft is planned at RAF Northolt on 17th September as part of the 70th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain. Somewhere in the region of 30 plus classic aircaft including 9 Tiger Moths, 2 Spitfires, a Hurricane and Dragon Rapide. There is a posibility that we can arrange a photo opportunity for people to catch the arrivals. Is there any interest out there? :smile:
Cheers Phil

We expect this event to run from around 0930 until 1630hrs. I understand that some of the visiting twin engined aircraft will be doing some local flying during the day. BBMF are due in during the afternoon (timings to be confirmed) PM me if you are interested in coming.
Cheers Phil
