Strategy to win: Fast reactions, good hand-eye coordination and observation skills, sharp anticipation skills, and ample reserves of courage are all very important traits of a top fighter pilot.

How to Play: A Flash-based, history-themed airplane shooting game for notebook, laptop and desktop PC / Mac (with certain browsers). When the game loads, click on the ‘Play’ button on the main menu screen, and then choose your fighter plane: the legendary British Spitfire plane or the iconic American P51 Mustang.
In each of the 18 increasingly-difficult levels, you must complete the specific task set out for you. This might be the shooting down of a target number of enemy planes, the bombing of a target number of enemy barracks, survival from anti-aircraft guns etc. You face off against a different enemy aircraft in each level (You are introduced to a small bit of interesting / factual information on the enemy planes before the level begins).
Control your fighter aircraft using your computer mouse or touchpad. The plane's movement mimics that of your cursor. Left Click or press Spacebar to fire your weapons. Each time you destroy an enemy aircraft, try to pick up the token it leaves in midair. These tokens can be used to purchase upgrades for your fighter plane in between each level. See if you can survive long enough to make it all the way to Level 18 – the culmination of the Battle of Britain! How far can your best friends get in this top side-scrolling shooter?
