I come from an air forces family - RNZAF and RAF, and lost my uncle Harry, NZ Expeditionary Force, on Crete in WWII. The Spitfire was a fabulous aircraft. Iconic. So too, the pilots who flew her and other RAF aircraft. Pilots and aircrew, thousands of who lost their lives or were seriously injured defending their country. Given the Commonwealth and wider International nature of aircrew during WWII and the Battle of Britain in particular, the Spitfire is a wonderful symbol of people of different nations, ethnicities, religions, and beliefs coming together for a common and good cause in the defense of fundamental human values.

Always pleased to help anything to do with Spitfires as my parents met on the Spitfire tail production line at Bedford. Never knew about these domes so looking forward to visiting.

Patrick, Well done for an excellent and most worthy memorial to a nearly past generation who gave so much towards the safety of this country.

A marvellous memorial for all those magnificent men and women and their fabulous flying machines. Well done so far and good luck with the Spitfire addition. As an RAF Veteran I look forward to visiting Langham this year and view the site at first hand.
