This is a replica of the famous WW2 fighter plane, and was installed overnight by Network Rail and the Imperial War Museums (IWM) to mark the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings. The replica plane can usually be
found on display at IWM Duxford in Cambridgeshire
London Bridge station was chosen for the display due in part to its proximity to HMS Belfast
, the Second World War cruiser and one of the first warships to fire on the Normandy beaches on D-Day in support of the Canadian and British troops on Juno Beach, opening fire at 5.27am on 6 June 1944.
