In 1940, British and German air forces found themselves locked in combat in the skies above the United Kingdom in what would become the largest sustained bombing campaign the world had ever seen. Despite the vicious ferocity of these attacks, Germany’s Luftwaffe failed to gain superiority over the Royal Air Force, forcing Hitler to permanently postpone a landing on the British Isles. Thus, the Battle of Britain became a decisive turning point in the war and proving the strength of air power. Retrace the events of 1940 and conclude the tour attending a spectacular celebration of Aviation history at the Farnborough Air show.
