Battle of Britain memorial flights

26 May

Tucano T1 with WWII Super-marine Spitfire

Two of the UK Royal Air Force’s Shorts Tucano T1 trainers have ditched their usual black colour schemes as part of the service’s efforts to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Battle of Britain.

Sporting Second World War camouflage markings, the trainers were flown in formation with one of the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight’s Supermarine Spitfires. The BBMF fly regularly around the UK – check their site for local events or fly by.
