Related Notes & Links
The tragic Death of Brian Brown will always cast a dark shadow over memories of 2007 Royal Air Force Association Show at Shoreham.
One of the highlights of the show was a mock dogfight with pseudo Messerschmitts Me108s [Nords] attacking the airfield, followed by Hurricanes & Spitfires taking off in pursuit. Moments later the tragedy occurred and the Spitfire contingent were quick to respond with the 'Missing Man Formation'
