I recently covered the first day of the RAF Fairford Air Tattoo. Jodie Kidd flew in in a Spitfire, whilst Bruce Dickinson of Iron Maiden fame flew in in his private jet. What touched me though was these 3 ex Battle of Britain Spitfire pilots watching a special Battle of Britain Salute involving Spitfire’s and Hurricane’s. We owe these guys so much.
