20 Battle of Britain

20 Battle of Britain MEMORIAL FLIGHT Today the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight (BBMF) is a household name and a national institution with a long established tradition of marking the end of World War II and those who bravely fought in it as a mark of respect. Wing Commander Peter Thompson DFC, then Station Commander at Biggin Hill, Kent, was primarily responsible for the formation of what we now know as the BBMF. After gaining his pilot’s wings in the summer of 1940, Peter flew Hurricanes during the Battle of Britain. By the mid-1950s Hurricane IIC LF363 was the only airworthy representative of its type with the RAF and was based at Biggin Hill. This gave Peter the basis for a grander plan. From humble beginnings there is now a dedicated unit, entrusted with caring for priceless assets of British aviation heritage, keeping the last remaining examples of the legendary fighters which had won the Battle of Britain – the Hurricane and Spitfire – in the air. The BBMF display consists of the following aircraft: Spitfire, Hurricane, Lancaster, Chipmunk and the Dakota. Displaying at Airbourne this year will be the Spitfire, Hurricane and Lancaster.
