Battle of Britain Memorial Flight

About

The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight (BBMF) is a household name and a national institution. Just about everyone will stop in their tracks as the familiar Spitfire, Hurricane and Dakota three-ship formation appears overhead. But it wasn’t always that way...

It has gone from being a loose collection of ‘obsolete types’ tucked away in the corner of various hangars, to caring for priceless assets of British aviation heritage, with its own headquarters.  Battle of Britain Day is remembered on 15th September 1940, as that date had marked the height of the aerial action. In 1945, thousands gathered in London to watch masses of RAF fighters carry out the first of what was to become an annual commemorative flypast over the Capital; it became the tradition for a Hurricane and Spitfire to lead.
