WARBIRD RADIO -September’s WONZ LIVE Show we will be marking the 75th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain, a very significant battle in which New Zealand airmen took part. Our live guest will be Brendon Deere, who’s uncle Air Commodore Alan Deere was one of the more significant fighter pilots of the battle, and was among the top New Zealand aces. As well as remembering his uncle and the other kiwis who took part, we’ll also be talking with Brendon about his own warbird collection, which includes a Supermarine Spitfire Mk. IXe that accurately represents Al Deere’s personal aircraft, plus a Grumman Avenger and a Harvard, based at his Biggin Hill Hangar at RNZAF Base Ohakea. (coloured photos” Gavin Conroy)
