PRINCE WILLIAM VISIT TO CONINGSBY

Tuesday 11th July saw a visit to RAF Coningsby’s Battle of Britain Memorial Flight by the Duke of Cambridge, Prince William.  His visit marked the 60th anniversary of the ‘BBMF’, and he was joined by veterans from the Second World War and their families to enjoy a spectacular flying display from the station’s aircraft.  Prince William is Honorary Air Commandant of RAF Coningsby and is believed to take a keen interest in the BBMF and it’s aircraft, following his time spent in Lincolnshire during his early officer training in the RAF.

ITV Yorkshire’s Calendar, along with our cameraman Simon White, went along to film the event and interview veterans and guests who joined the celebrations:
