Battle of Britain Day: Sept 15

Last Sunday I went for a lovely walk (no. 23) in Bromley and on the way there and back drove past Biggins Hill airport.

There are original Battle of Britain Hurricane and Spitfire fighterplanes on fixed display as you drive past.

Next time you pass park up and have a look around.

This picture left is of a Spitfire that was flown by pilot officer G.A Wellum who was based at Biggins Hill from 10 July to 31 October 1940.

The BBC website has some superb stories here on the Battle of Britain and this special day.
