Polish Memorial Flight Planned to commemorate the death of F/Lt. Piotr Łaguna

May 19, 2020

We are pleased to announce that Lagunas Spitfire Legacy has now agreed our planned Polish Memorial Flight for 2021 in conjunction with the Historic Aircraft Collection and Polish Heritage Flight. This to celebrate the 80th Anniversary of the loss of Wing Commander Łaguna and Spitfire P8331 on the 27th June 1941 and to honour the 18,000 Polish Air Force personnel who never received the opportunity to March in the victory parades of 1946 for political reasons.

It is longer-term, the plan to take an airworthy Spitfire P8331 RF-M and the Polish Heritage Flight as The Polish Memorial Flight to Poland in 2025. This to Celebrate the 85th and 80th Anniversaries of the Battle of Britain and VE Day as an acknowledgement of “Righting the wrongs of the past” which time has allowed us to do. *Quote founder Scott Booth. More details of the flight will follow over the coming months.

This is not intended as a Political Statement on decisions made in 1945 by incumbent Governments and Allied leadership. However, it is acknowledging and honour’s Britain’s loyalist Allies of the war years.
