To mark the 70th anniversary of the Battle of Britain, farmer Tom Pearcy cropped a gigantic spitfire maze in the fields outside of York.
Notes (from article “World’s largest spitfire is A-maze-ing tribute to ‘The few‘” by York Maze):
[...] Measuring over 300m (1000ft) in length the Spitfire is 30 times the size of the real thing and has been painstakingly carved out of over 1 million living maize plants. The design also features the words ‘Never Forget 1940-2010′ in 40ft high letters and a giant Union Jack. The 10km of pathways form an intricate maze for visitors to explore. York Maze is the largest maize maze in Europe and one of the largest in the world.
Tom Pearcy’s previous maze designs have included an Astronaut, the Statue of Liberty and the Flying Scotsman.
