Welcome to Laguna’s Spitfire Legacy
Welcome to Laguna’s Spitfire Legacy (LSL) Not for Profit Project.
Thank you for taking the time to read this document. The idea behind LSL is to create a lasting recognition to the brave Battle of Britain Pilots with a specific focus on a central figurehead in Wing Commander Piotr Łaguna. These brave pilots whom were so pivotal in the outcome of the Second World War, were coined by Sir Winston Churchill as “The Few”.
LSL’s sole aim is to deliver this, through interaction with the public at organized events such as Polish Heritage days, Airshows and other such appropriate wartime events around the country. This will take place in the form of a full scale replica of Wing Commander Laguna’s 303 Squadron Spitfire, P8331 RF-M Sumatra. He flew this aircraft for the last time and was lost on 27th June 1941 over Coquelles, France. This will be for the public to see, touch and feel. We will also have a full scale cockpit replica for people to experience what it was like to sit in and fly a Spitfire. Supporting this will be an exhibition of personal equipment and articles relating to the aircraft and pilot(s).
All profits will directly be fed back into the poject.
