The Battle Of Britain Memorial Flight is a unique living tribute to all those airmen who sacrificed their lives in WWII and in an era of fast high performance jets, it is a reminder of the remarkable achievements of the men who flew and maintained these historic aircraft in WWII.
The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight operates a Lancaster, five Spitfires, two Hurricanes, two Chipmunks, and a Dakota. In 1986, under a unique arrangement between Lincolnshire County Council and the Royal Air Force, it became possible to view these historic aircraft at their base at RAF Coningsby.
The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight Visitor Centre is also located at RAF Coningsby, Lincolnshire. Entry to the exhibition centre, souvenir shop and car park are free, but there is a small charge for guided tours of the hangar, with special rates for groups.
