Spitfire double treat for Boston 1940s event

A flypast at Boston's 1940s event on Sunday has been upgraded from a Dakota to a pair of Spitfires.

The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight (BBMF) had originally made the Dakota flypast available, but substituted the pair of Spitfires when the Dakota was grounded.

Now, weather permitting, not one, but two of the aircraft most associated with Second World War dominance of the skies will make a glorious appearance over Boston.

The free event in Boston's Central Park this Sunday from 10am to 4pm will also feature vintage vehicles, Boston Jive, a 1940s singer, Kirton Brass Band, '40s Home Front, retro stalls, an afternoon tea tent, re-enactment displays, 1940s parlour, vintage fair and a Dakota flypast.

Visitors are encouraged to attend in 1940s dress, bring a picnic and stay all day.
