Goodwood has been a busy place of late.

Anyone living, working or studying within a 20-mile radius of this West Sussex estate will undoubtedly be aware that this was the weekend the famous aerodrome was given over to the renowned Goodwood Motor Circuit Revival. That magical step back in time where Goodwood’s motor racing history, re-lived with all the glamour (and grime) of a bygone era, has just closed its gates on another successful event.

But this year… for one year only, the story doesn’t end there.

Tuesday 15th September marks the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain – and to commemorate this historic event, around 40 Spitfires, Hurricanes and more are scheduled to take off from Goodwood Aerodrome as part of a poignant Battle of Britain Day Flypast.

Guaranteed to stir the emotions of a nation, this unique event will pay its respects to the courageous pilots, and everyone who bravely contributed to the war effort.

Although tickets to view the aircraft taking off within the aerodrome have now sold out, there will be plenty of places across southern England where you will be able to enjoy great views of the flypasts.

As for us? We consider ourselves fortunate to be able to view this fabulous spectacle from the decked area in our very own car park.
