As is now traditional, the Museum and Tearoom were reopened for volunteers and visitors to mark Remembrance Sunday and after recent appalling wet weather, the day was blessed with bright sunshine.
A 2-minute silence was observed at precisely 11am preceded by The Last Post and within a short moment after the dying notes of Reveille sounded across the Teagarden, a familiar sound was heard approaching.
To the delight of everyone, the sound of a Merlin chorus turned into the glorious sight of 3 Spitfires accompanied by a Hurricane that flew in terrific formation over the Museum, before sweeping around the village for another pass-by the Museum and returning to nearby Biggin Hill.
Massive thanks goes to the Biggin Hill Heritage Hangar team for so generously taking to the skies to thrill so many people on the ground in an unbeatable and fitting Remembrance tribute. The Team themselves visited the Museum later in the afternoon and kindly brought along 222 Squadron veteran Bob Duckett.
