The world’s sole surviving complete Hawker Typhoon is making a guest appearance in the BBMF hangar at RAF Coningsby for the next two months in a joint project between the Royal Air Force, the RAF Museum and BAE Systems.

The BBMF was very saddened to hear of the death of Battle of Britain fighter ace Wing Commander Tom Neil DFC and Bar AFC AE LdH, who passed away on 11th July, three days before his 98th birthday.

Tom had been a friend of the BBMF for many years, he wrote the ‘Veteran’s Viewpoint’ for the Official Club 2015 Yearbook (the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain issue), and he had attended various events with the Flight, including last year’s BBMF 60th anniversary celebrations.
