| When Britain stood seemingly alone in the hectic and volatile Summer of 1940. All that stood between winning and losing freedom was the Hurricane and Spitfires and a handful of brave fighter pilots. |
These guys came from all walks of life. They never faltered in their belief and determination and bravery that Britain would
| remain free and fight on against overwhelming odds. |
In spite of being a small island country, the British were a strong people. The RAF proved to be brave fighters against the mighty Luftwaffe.
During the Battle of Britain in 1940, the RAF shot down hundreds of the Luftwaffe's Messerschmitt Bf-109's. Not only did the RAF
| fighters go up to meet the advancing Luftwaffe fighters and bombers, they did so against seemingly overwhelming odds. At the end of the battle, Winston Churchill said: "Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few." |
Below are some of the R.A.F's aircraft that shaped history and became legends.
