10 October Battle of Britain pilot by Cherrill

10 October Battle of Britain pilot

Went to the last historic flying day of the season at Duxford, near Cambridge. We go on a regular basis my partner being ex RAF and into all things plane. One of the hangars has a Battle of Britain exhibition at the moment, being commemorated in many ways for its 60th anniversary. I guess this guy represents all the 'workers' during those times.
If you are in UK and you get a chance visit Duxford Air Museum, then go. There's so much of interest there, even for a non-planer!! :-)
Thank you to everyone for the kind comments on yesterday's caterpillar....it was just a chance meeting!
Wonderful place to visit,We went to the one at Cosford,It made me feel very sad when I realised how very young these pilot's were.

Wonderful capture of one of the displays. Looks like a very interesting place to visit. Quite a saftey harness they had to wear! Nicely done.

What tremendous courage these young fliers displayed everytime they got into their airplanes. He is dressed for a crash or bail-out and not for a safe flight. Your lovely photo is a lovely tribute to the memory of these young men.

we have kind of ignored this anniversary in the u. s., i'm glad there has quite a bit here on 365 about it.

They were extremely brave. The model looks like how we imagine the dashing young men looked.

Hi Cherrill. Thank you again for contacting me I will look up your message on the other photo. I uploaded it in one of my ace albums as the time spot was already taking by this photo of the birds where I just blurted out the bad news so I decided to give a tribute to my sister with this picture of the two of us. it was taking on our last visit in October 2009,.
