Our editor, Philip Whiteman, had the following to say in the introduction to this one-off, fascinating issue: “Pilot has always put the reader in the cockpit of aircraft featured in the magazine, and for this commemorative section is was my pleasure to go back through our archive, searching for outstanding features on the main fighter protagonists of the Battle of Britain - the Spitfire, Hurricane, and Messerschmitt 109.”

We hope you enjoy reading it as much as we enjoyed putting it together.
