    The fly past today has been delayed to about a 14.00 start due to the weather - if you are in the South, the various routes for the c40 planes are on the link below.

    Indeed, one of the best war films IMHO.

    Hopefully children are being taught a) how important the battle was and b) that the battle was fought not just by British pilots, but also by Poles, Czechs, South Africans, Canadians, New Zealanders, Australians...and others.
