photoblog image Hurricane Flight

Hurricane Flight

 

Life on the flightline waiting can be boring but back in 1940 the call would come through to scamble the fighters as there were incoming enemy planes on the way.

 

The pilots would race to their planes and take off.

 

Scramble

 

The fligth would take off seeking out the enemy over the East of England.

 

The Flight

 

And a plane would be downed.

 

Dogfight

 

Action from the Battle of Britan airshow at Duxford last weekend.
