There goes the siren that warns of the air raid,
Then comes the sound of the guns sending flak.
Out for the scramble we’ve got to get airborne,
Got to get up for the coming attack.

Jump in the cockpit and start up the engines,
Remove all the wheelblocks there’s no time to waste.
Gathering speed as we head down the runway,
Got to get airborne before it’s too late.

Running, scrambling, fire,
Rolling, turning, diving, going in again.
Running, scrambling, fire, Rolling, turning, diving,
Run, live to fly, fly to live, do or die.
Won’t you run, live to fly, fly to live, Aces high!

Move in to fire at the mainstream of bombers,
Let off a shell burst and then turn away.
Roll over, spin round to come in behind them,
Move to their blindsides and firing again.

Bandits at 8 O’clock move in behind us,
Ten ME-109’s out of the sun.
Ascending and turning our spitfires to face them,
Heading straight for them I press down my guns.

Rolling, turning, diving,
Rolling, turning, diving, going in again.
Rolling, turning, diving, Rolling, turning, diving,
Run, live to fly, fly to live, do or die.
Won’t you run, live to fly, fly to live, Aces high!!!

Duxford Flying Legends is an anually held airshow at Duxford airfield, a famous WW2 airfield known especially for its role in the Battle of Britain – and since it was 70th anniversary of this famous battle this year, it would be a sin not to visit. This will be a multipart report, as are from my previous airshows so keep checking back for new updates.

And here’s the tenth and last post of this years RIAT. I thorougly enjoyed the show and would love to spend 2 days at it, to fully explore the huge static display and everything that’s going on around the airfield. The only drawback is it’s price…
