207 SQUADRON ROYAL AIR FORCE HISTORY
Devons - BBMF days
Over the English Channel coming back from Normandy. Norman Enston and Ian Hampton escorted the Hurricane over for the Caen Airshow as part of the 40th anniversary celebrations in June '84.
Ian: "We didn't own up to the fact that 207 played a significant part in flattening the town of Caen in June 1944. On the way back the British Aerospace owned Mosquito asked if he could tag along to save him going all the way up to the Pas de Calais for a shorter crossing. A special formation! The Devon is VP952, now in the RAF Museum at Cosford."
