Saturday 1 September, 8pm UK time,: Wieluń Memorial Flight
Base plan will be a Memorial Flight around Wieluń in Poland. This was the first area bombed (by Stukas) that kicked off WW2. When? Why on September 1 of course!
The planned route for FlightNight will be as follows:
We will start at the site of the original bombing campaign at Neider-Ellguth (EPKN), which was located in Germany (now Poland) with respect to pre-WW2 borders. We will then overfly the sites of the first aerial offensive of the war, at Radomsko, Dzialszyn and Sujelow, before taking a break at Łódź Władysław Reymont airport (EPLL).
After this, its a cross country flight, past fix GRU (Grudziadz) and onto flypast the docks area of Gdansk (the Westerplatte, site of the 1st ground offensive 3-5 mins. after the aerial attack) before circling around to conclude the flight at Gdynia-Kosakowo airport (EPOK).
Plan will be to have an assortment of period planes. Ideally, would like to see Spit (possibly in Polish regiment), Hurricane, some kind of bomber (Stirling, Lanc, Hali), a Messy Schmit and of course a Stuka.
