The Hardest Day - Biggin Hill 18/8/2015 (large post)

No jets and afterburners here I'm afraid...just the wonderful sound of the merlin...or actually, the wonderful sound of many merlins !
Its gonna rain, its gonna rain till the levee breaks, a tidal wave of fear and pain washes us away, another fight into the night until nothing else remains, how do we find harbour from the Hurricane?

Due to work, this was one I had to miss, I'd been offered an airside pass too! But great to see these pics, thank you for sharing them.
