Story

To commemorate the 85th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain and the 100th Anniversary of the Polish Air Force University, Dęblin, The Polish Heritage Flight, in partnership with The Polish Airforce Memorial Committee are planning a commemorative Hurricane flight from Duxford in the UK to Dęblin in Poland.

This symbolic flight, undertaken by Hawker Hurricane G-HURI, will take place August 2025.

The aircraft wears the markings of 302 ‘City of Poznan’ Squadron, based at RAF Duxford in September 1940. The sight and sound of a Hawker Hurricane in Poland will be a symbol of our eternal gratitude to the Polish People airmen and those who came to ‘The island of the last hope’ to fight ‘for your freedom and ours’ in the Second World War.

Since the Polish Heritage Flight was formed in 2019 it has always been a dream to bring the aircraft to Poland. It would be a fitting conclusion to a Project that has worked hard to tell the Polish Air Force story in the UK for the past 5 years. During the flight, it is planned to take in other historic locations in Poland but it is critical we raise the required funds first.

The total cost if the project is £35,000 and breaks down as follows:

Fuel

Insurance

Accommodation

Landing fees

Itinerary: Poznan (Armed Forces Day 15 August), Toruń (306 Squadron), Warsaw (306 Squadron), Dęblin (315 Squadron and PAF Academy), Radom air show (30-31 August)

You can make this historic flight a reality by donating to our project. Every penny raised will be used solely to meet the costs of this project.
