We are delighted to announce that the Royal Air Force "Battle of Britain Memorial Flight" have confirmed that they will be supporting Rockin 2 Remember with the provision of a flypast by one of the Squadron's iconic 'Spitfire' aircraft.

The precise timing of the flypast will be confirmed nearer to the day, as it is dependent on weather, other tasks and the routing planned for the aircraft.

This is an incredible honour for our event, and a wonderful opportunity for all attending to see one of the most famous aircraft of all time!

About the Spitfire

Produced in greater numbers than any other British combat aircraft before or since the War, 20,341 Spitfires were built in 22 different variants (excluding the navalised Seafire) and the aircraft remained in production for 12 years.

The prototype's maiden flight took place on 5th March 1936 and Mk1 Spitfires entered RAF service (with No 19 Squadron) in August 1938.

There are currently six Spitfires on the Flight.

About the BBMF

The Royal Air Force Battle of Britain Memorial Flight (BBMF) operates from RAF Coningsby, a Typhoon and fighter base, in Lincolnshire.

The mission of the RAF BBMF is to maintain the priceless artefacts of our national heritage in airworthy condition in order to commemorate those who have fallen in the service of this country, to promote the modern day Air Force and to inspire the future generations.

Flown by regular serving RAF Aircrew, the Flight operates six Spitfires, two Hurricane Mk 2Cs, a Lancaster as well as a C47 Dakota and two Chipmunk aircraft (primarily used for training).

From May to September each year, these aircraft can be regularly seen in the skies over the UK celebrating and commemorating public and military events from State occasions such as Trooping the Colour to major air displays and simple flypasts for public events. We are proud to have HRH Prince William, Duke of Cambridge as our Patron.

The motto of the RAF BBMF reflects our mission and honours the thousands of men and women, in the air and on the ground, that gave their lives for this country in the noble pursuit of freedom.
