RAF Flypast for Captain Tom Moore

On Thursday 30 April 2020, two Royal Air Force Battle of Britain Memorial Flight aircraft took part in a flypast to honour the 100th birthday of Captain Tom Moore.

Hurricane LF363, flown by Squadron Leader Mark Discombe, Officer Commanding the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, and Spitfire MK365, flown by Flight Lieutenant Andy Preece, completed three passes at Captain Tom Moore’s house in Bedfordshire.

The Army veteran has now raised over £30 million to support NHS charities.

Sqn Ldr Discombe said,

“It was an exhilarating and humbling experience to celebrate Tom’s centenary and incredible fund-raising for the NHS in a fitting RAF fashion.”
