70th Anniversary of Battle of Britain Flypast at RAF Fairford (RIAT 2010) Royal International Air Tattoo (RIAT) commemorates 70th Anniversary of Battle of Britain

The Skies over RAF Fairford have been filled with the sights and sound of Second World War fighter planes as part of the Royal International Air Tattoo's Battle of Britain commemorations.

Nearly a dozen Spitfires and Hurricanes, along with a trio of German aircraft from the same era, have been performing in a series of flypasts. Their incredible displays mark the 70th anniversary of the epic air battle waged between the RAF's Fighter Command and the German Luftwaffe in the skies over Southern England during the summer of 1940.

As the aircraft took to the skies, the evocative sound of piston engines filled the air. Joining this priceless collection were their more-modern brethren from countries who contributed pilots to fight in the Battle of Britain, as well as aircraft from RAF squadrons which took part in the battle. The modern-day flypasts included fighters from the United States, Belgium and France while a 757 transport plane all the way from New Zealand also took part in the flying display.
