Based at RAF Coningsby in Lincolnshire, the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight (BBMF) is the RAF’s premier vintage aircraft display team. The BBMF is one of the most important collections of air-worthy historic aircraft in existence. The Flight showcases classic, well-loved aircraft of the Second World War, including an Avro Lancaster, seven Supermarine Spitfires, two Hawker Hurricanes, a Douglas Dakota and two de Havilland Chipmunks. A stunning collection of air-to-air action photographs supplies the most spectacular images in the book, but the author also explores restoration processes and the constant engineering work necessary to keep these aircraft in operational condition.
