Flight line walk, a short story

Last weekend, the airshow celebrating the Battle of Britain took place in Duxford. Long before the crews started the engines of their Messerschmitt, Hurricane, Lysander and other wonderful, 80 years-old flying machines, the show started on the ground, for those who had access to the flight line. A crowd of volunteers participated in giving a unique, 1940 atmosphere.


“Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few.”

Winston Churchill

Traveling to Duxford is like playing with a time machine. Remembering that, as Churchill once said, “never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few.”
