Internationally renowned aviation artist Simon Atack has teamed up with AHL in readiness for the 2015 commemorations of the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain.

Simon, who graphically portrayed the Dambuster Raid last year in a new painting, has agreed to examine the Battle through one incident which took place over the skies of Skegness on 21st August 1940 and involved the Spitfires of 611 Sqn flying from RAF Digby.
