Our latest upload at aviationanoraks.co.uk features our visit last September to the Battle Of Britain Memorial at Capel-le-Ferne in Kent.
This was our first visit for about ten years, so the Wing visitor centre and Battle Of Britain experience were new to us. The experience is worth paying to enter, as the money helps with the upkeep of the site, and the drama of the experience contrasts with the peace of the Memorial which looks out to sea towards France.
