Although the Lancaster is included in the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, it was a long-range bomber and was not involved in he Battle of Britain. But hey, it’s a beautiful aircraft.

It’s easy to identify the difference between a Hurricane and Spitfire by looking at the wings. The Hurricane has narrower wings with straight edges, whereas the Spitfire has curved wings.

The tail gunner had the most precarious job, and their average life expectancy was only five sorties. Bombers have neither the speed or maneuverability of fighter aircraft which made them easy pickings by German fighter planes.

The Spitfire had to be adapted early into the Second World War due to the engine being constructed with  a carburetor rather than having fuel injection. The carburetor meant the spitfire could not manoeuvre so well because the engine would cut out during steep turns or when trying to fly upside down.
