Glenbrae RAF Flyover
Glenbrae took to the skies this weekend thanks to a special flyover organised by the Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund.
Local residents, news reporters and history buffs gathered at Spa Mill, home to Glenbrae, on Saturday morning to watch the last remaining airborne Spitfire that flew in the Battle of Britain speed over the mill. Flying at low altitude, every detail of the plane – with the distinctive RAF roundel on the underside of the wings – was visible, and the pilot treated the crowd to some impressively nimble turns and a friendly waggle of the wings before disappearing into the clouds.
The flyover was organised as part of Glenbrae’s partnership with the Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund, a charity which provides welfare support to current and ex-members of the Royal Air Force and their families. The partnership, which will last for the next three years, is of particular importance this year as the charity celebrates the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain.
To support the charity, Propaganda have developed a unique 75th anniversary crest, specifically for Glenbrae, to appear on a special commemorative jumper and scarf. £10 and £5 respectively from every sale goes directly to the Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund.
