Designed and organised by Officer Commanding 42(F) (King’s Lynn) Squadron, in conjunction with the Borough Council, a ‘Flight Path of 24 decorated model Spitfires have been erected throughout the Town of King’s Lynn. The first of the Spitfires was unveiled outside Kings Lynn Arts Centre after the recent Freedom Parade by the squadron.

Books and maps of the flightpath are available and show many of the historic buildings that are passed when following  the ‘flightpath.’These can be obtained from the Tourist Information Centre or from the squadron.

In recognition of the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain,each aircraft also has a sponsor board with the name of the local company that has sponsored it , the name of the artists and the Name of the Spitfire!

Also within the sponsor boards are some letters to collect. When all of these are put together and unjumbled  a well know saying can be made, this can be sent in and winners will be drawn after September 30th.

The aircraft should be in position until after the Battle of Britain weekend and then will be retouched and cleaned and then auctioned for charity. More details to follow
