This could be any airfield during the Battle of Britain !!
Shoreham Airshow 2009

The Battle of Britain is the name given to the air campaign waged by the German Air Force (Luftwaffe) against the United Kingdom during the summer and autumn of 1940. The objective of the campaign was to gain air superiority over the Royal Air Force (RAF), especially Fighter Command. The name derives from a famous speech delivered by Prime Minister Winston Churchill in the House of Commons;“The Battle of France is over. The Battle of Britain is about to begin”
