PostSubject: Battle Of Britain   Tue Sep 15, 2015 2:59 pm

Today I rode over to the airfield at Goodwood in the South of England for a dramatic event held to mark the 75th Anniversary of the end of the Battle Of Britain.

There were around 40 Hurricanes and Spitfires as well as one Bristol Blenheim fighter/bomber.

The main event was the take-off in groups of the aeroplanes, all of which over-flew the airfield before setting off in sections of 2, 3 or 4 to fly over various significant towns and cities, places where parts for the planes had been manufactured and factories where they'd been assembled.

Unfortunately, the weather forced some of the sections to miss their 'targets' but it was a marvellous experience. Rumour has it there were 32,000 people there plus thousands outside. I didn't count them

Goodwood was a satellite airfield for the more famous Tangmere.
