WWII Wednesday: Preserve the History

One aircraft can mean so much

If you visit London it’s hard to imagine the sky filled with WWII aircraft. Today’s weapons systems and detection equipment make the Battle of Britain seem as though it were a millennia ago instead of less than a century. This is why it’s so important to accurately preserve the historical events, and when possible, the actual military platforms that made Allied victory a reality. One of our family’s favorite trips was to the many different museums in London. In the photo you can see a Spitfire, with Steve in the photo to give an idea of scale.
