Description - The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight by Richard Winslade
"The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight" showcases classic aircraft of the Second World War, including an Avro Lancaster, seven Supermarine Spitfires, two Hawker Hurricanes, a Douglas Dakota and two de Havilland Chipmunks. To mark the 50th anniversary of the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight's formation, Richard Winslade presents a detailed study of one of one of the world's most important airworthy historic aircraft collections.
