Battle of Britain Memorial Flight - Clacton 2012
The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight display usually comprises the Avro Lancaster Bomber, a Hurricane and a Spitfire, though on occasions there are several Spitfires.

On this occasion as well as the Lancaster there were two Spitfires rather than one Spitfire and a Hurricane, as the Hurricane was being repaired. One of the Spitfires had four wings on the propeller and one was the later model with five wings on the propeller.
