Historic Swordfish W5856 to lead VJ Day commemorative flypast

A historic aircraft from Somerset is due to take part in this weekend's VJ Day commemorations.

The last airworthy Swordfish plane, based at RNAS Yeovilton, will lead the flypast in London.

It has taken years of restoration work to get the plane back into service again.

Pilot Lt Simon Williams told BBC Points West flying the Swordfish W5856 "isn't for the fainthearted".
