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.”
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.”
