Battle of Britain Memorial Flypast

Spitfire Mk Vb AB910 (flypast taking place at 13.10)

On 26th August 1941, AB910, flown by Pilot Officer Ramsey, was part of a force of 24 Spitfires patrolling off East Goodwin to cover the withdrawal of a ‘Circus’ from St Omer. The next day AB910 was one of 12 Spitfires from 222 Squadron providing top cover at 19,000 feet to nine Bristol Blenheims on a bombing raid to Arras. On 29th August it was one of 11 Spitfires from the Squadron which flew as part of the ‘withdrawal wing’ patrolling off Dunkirk at 20,000 feet. All these sorties were flown by Ramsey. AB910 then suffered some damage, which put it out of action until December 1941 when it was allocated to 130 Squadron based at Perranporth, Cornwall, from where it flew further escort and daylight bombing raids and convoy patrols.

After having completed 143 ‘ops’ in almost three and a half years of war fighting, AB910 is still flying in RAF hands and will be displaying a special Battle of Britain Memorial Flypast at the Pageant of Motoring.
