Battle of Britain Air Show 2021
Del Laughery travelled “across the pond” to Duxford, in the United Kingdom, for the 2021 Battle of Britain Air Show. Some rare aircraft just beginning their service before World War II were displayed, such as this Curtiss Hawk 75 and a Consolidated PBY. Three German and French-built ME-109s and more than a dozen Spitfires and Hurricanes portrayed the great battle in the skies over the U.K. Summer and Autumn, 1940.
Later warbirds from the Second World War, plus later aircraft like the DHC Beaver and a few helicopters were also flown. Here’s a look at what Del saw during the show:
