(Forces News) 18th April 2022
We've been finding out how a team of engineers has been working to get the aircraft from the Royal Air Force Battle of Britain Memorial Flight ready for a year of airshows.

We visited those hard at work in a hangar containing six Spitfires, two Hurricanes, two Chipmunks, a Dakota and a Lancaster - which is thought to be only one of two in the world capable of flying.
