The Flying Heritage Collection will commemorate the Battle of Britain at this Saturday's Fly Day event in Everett.
The Battle of Britain was the first major war campaign fought entirely by air forces in the summer and fall of 1940. Two British fighters have been credited for winning the Battle of Britain: the Supermarine Spitfire and the Hawker Hurricane. A version of each will take to the skies between noon and 1 p.m. Saturday as part of the free Fly Days series this summer.
The Flying Heritage Collection features accurately restored flying-condition World War II aircraft. It's located at Everett's Paine Field, 3407 109th St. SW. Saturday's event is free to the public but does not include admission to the collection.
Admission prices are as follows: $12 for adults; $10 for seniors and military members; $8 for youth, ages 6 to 15; children 5 and under are free. Groups of 15 or more people can purchase discounted tickets of $10 per person.
