Only just found out about this - and in case anybody in the area is interested and like me - had not heard of it.....

Up to 13 Spitfires are setting off from Humberside airport today to celebrate the battle of Britain.

All will be flying over the Humber Bridge at 1604

They will then be splitting in to groups and flying over a wide area in the North covering parts of East Yorks, North Yorks, Teeside, North Lincs, Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire

Full details of places covered and timings here link

If I had known in advance - I know exactly where I would be standing on Hessle foreshore to get the bridge shots!

Perhaps a bit further away Andy - but if they cross in the right place - that could be good I suspect they will be coming in from the East to give the best view to the spectators on the bridge

Sounds great. We had the mass flypast at Fairford...spits plus hurricanes, Me109 and Buchon, not forgetting the sole surviving flying Blenheim. BUT the only problem photographically is that if its anything like Fairford they will be split into smaller flights of 3-4 aircraft...very difficult to get all in the same frame without each aircraft being much more than a speck...hope i'm wrong!

Will be a fantastic spectacle regardless for aviation enthusiasts.

5 flew over my house in formation in Grimsby. I had just returned from shooting a wedding so my cameras where away but they sounded brilliant -)

Hi all,

Four went over the centre of Chesterfield about a mile from our house. Sadly dull conditions, wonderful noise.
