Battle of Britain: Historic flypast for 75th anniversary
A flypast involving over 30 Spitfires and Hurricanes took place to commemorate the 75th anniversary of World War Two's Battle of Britain.

The grouping, the biggest in one place since the war, took off from Goodwood Aerodrome in West Sussex, then flew to airfields linked to the battle.

Spitfires, Hurricanes and Blenheim, from across the UK, US and Europe came together at Goodwood Aerodrome.
