Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.

RAF Coningsby, Lincolnshire.
 
On the way back from visiting my Uncle Frank in Lincolnshire, I took time to visit this RAF base to see the famous Spitfires, Hurricanes & Lancaster the RAF still keep in flying condition and which make appearances at various flying shows during the Summer, weather permitting.
 

C-47 Dakota ZA947 still used to drop Paras over Arnhem and other special commemoration events.
 
 

 
Spitfire Mk IIa P7350
 

Spitfire Mk LFIXe MK356
 



Lancaster PA474

 
Having her windows cleaned !
 
 
Spitfire Mk Vb No. 133 (Eagle Squadron)
as used by American volunteers before the USA entered the war.
 
An amazing experience if you ever get the chance to go there - highly recommended.
