Eurofighter Typhoon ZK349 GN-A Display

A collection of images showing Eurofighter Typhoon FGR.4 ZK349 adorned in special markings to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain in 2015.

ZK349 has been painted in the colours of Flight Lieutenant Nicolson’s No.249 Squadron Hawker Hurricane Mk.I P3576/GN-A. On August 16th 1940, whilst attempting to bale out of the burning Hurricane after a battle with a number of Messerschmitts over Southampton, Nicolson saw a Bf 110 pass in front of his aircraft and immediately climbed back into his seat to fire on the German twin-engine fighter causing it to dive away and crash in to the ground. Only then did Nicolson bale out but not before sustaining significant injuries.

DotR on Instagram

Defence of the Realm now has an Instagram account.

Defence of the realm Instagram

Instagram will be used to share images relevant to the site ranging from museum and show visits to a few behind the scenes stuff. Unlike my Twitter account which is my personal account (hence all the posts showing what old Sega or Nintendo games I am playing today) the Instagram site is dedicated to Defence of the Realm and when the show season starts in the summer I will be announcing in advance of where and when I am going so you can see what pics I will be sending out live.

If you are on Instagram then why not follow the site. The username is simply “defenceoftherealm”. Don’t forget that if you have any images you want to share either on the main site or Instagram then you can email DefencerealmYT@gmail.com and get in touch (I will give full credit and promote your own site/twitter/charity/etc).

Click on the link to view the Instagram site now. There’s not much on there at the moment but it is only early days.

Thank you all again for your support.

All the best,
