Flypast to mark Battle of Britain anniversary
Thu 10 September 2015, 10:41 am
The Bentley Priory museum in Stanmore is hosting events in September to mark the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain.
The museum is based at a former non-flying Royal Air Force station used during the First World War, and focuses on its role as fighter command headquarters during the Battle of Britain in 1940.
Boultbee Flight Academy’s flypast takes place on Battle of Britain Day on Tuesday 15 September, when six fighter aircraft will fly over the museum.
The event marks an important day in the battle, when the Luftwaffe co-ordinated large bombing raids over London and the south of England, but lost a significant amount of aircraft.
The Tonic choir and young people from St John’s School, Grimsdyke School and Harrow Youth Choir will perform the musical piece, Fighter Command and the Battle for Britain, six times over three days at the museum during the second half of the month.
