Spitfire Johnnie Johnson ace remembered at RAF Wittering

Spitfire ace Johnnie Johnson has been remembered at RAF Wittering and in turn, the station has received a bust of the legendary pilot.

Air Vice Marshal James Edgar Johnson, nicknamed Johnnie, was a famous Royal Air Force pilot and flying ace, with his wartime record including 700 operational sorties, engaging enemy aircraft 57 times and shooting down 34 of them.

The Johnnie Johnson Appreciation Society celebrates his life and stages an annual lunch at RAF Wittering every year, with a silver bust of him taking pride of place at the table.
