A comment on the first picture. According to What is a featured article? captions should be concise. Could we remove the names of the pilots to bring the caption down to an accetable length? On second thoughts the names could go into a reference or footnote. ► Philg88 ◄talk 23:35, 19 April 2011 (UTC)
I've moved the names of the pilots to a new Footnotes section, and moved the photograph into the Battle of Britain section. Harrison49 (talk) 13:38, 22 April 2011 (UTC)
The Spitfire 22 at the gate carried the serial number WP916, which seems to me to be actually a Chipmunk serial number. Can anyone confirm or deny? Paul Magnussen (talk) 16:49, 18 October 2012 (UTC)
PK624 did carry the serial WP916 during the 1960s but I believe it was repainted to the correct serial in 1963 when it was moved to Northolt. It moved on from Northolt in the late 60s for the Battle of Britain film. Not sure why it had the wrong serial but it may have been the only stencil they had at Uxbridge when it was re-painted.

In opening sentences, units are very inconsistent. Land measurements in UK are generally given in miles, not a mixture of nautical miles kilometres. Equally, sixteenths of compass points are unnecessary, as is the direction and distance from another, not apprecviably better known, town once one location is given. Being Bold.
