This year saw the 75th commemoration of the Battle of Britain be remembered by a flypast of over 40 Spitfires and Hurricanes taking off from RAF Westhampnett, (better known these days as Goodwood Aerodrome) before heading off along the British coastline in all directions from West Sussex. This would be the first time since world war two that so many of these wonderful aircraft would be seen in the skies over Britain since the war.
The event would all see over 30,000 people turn up at Goodwood Aerodrome, and many thousands more heading towards hilltops and beach fronts to watch and participate in this memorable occasion, I for one wouldn’t have missed this event for all the tea in China. So many brave men and women lost their lives during World War Two depending this country, therefore it’s only right that the nation stop, line up and pay it’s respect to its nations fallen heroes
Spitfires and Hurricanes from all over the world were bought into Goodwood Aerodrome, under the watchful eye of the staff at Boultbee Flight Academy, to which a very big thank you is given for holding and hosting this amazing Battle of Britain 1940 Flypast 2015 event, Job Well Done
To the fallen Pilots of World War Two, We will never forget You.
