Battle of Britain Air Show

70 years ago the Battle of Britain reached its peak in the skies over England. In honour of this the Imperial War Museum Duxford hosted the Battle of Britain Air Show last weekend. I went on the Saturday and of course took my camera with me. As I reported on Wednesday I got a little 'trigger happy' and shot nearly 600 pictures in the course of the day. However I have managed to whittle this down to 120 which I have now posted below as a slide show. I hope you like them.

The highlight of the Air Show was a flyby of no less than 16 Spitfires. This was a truly incredible sight and sent shivers down my spine and made me get all patriotic and tearful. Wonderful stuff indeed. There were also other highlights including a flypast by the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, the B17 Sally B and an excellent display by 19 Squadron RAF showing off a new Eurofighter Typhoon.
