Re: Battle of Britain Air Show, Duxford (Part 2)

Great shots, but I don't think any of them flew in the Battle of Britain. Duxford should have been well aware of this!

The Warhawk is the nearest but P-40s didn't see service with the RAF till July 1941 (in Egypt) & the Battle of Britain is reckoned by the British to have finished in October 1940. Even the extended German range of the Battle of Britain (to June 1941 with the end of the Blitz) isn't quite enough for overlap.
