“Never was so much owed by so many to so few” - the inimitable words of Winston Churchill as he eulogised the crews of the Royal Air Force.

The Battle of Britain was one of the decisive moments of the Second World War, shaping the future of not only the country but of the world. The effectiveness of the Supermarine Spitfire epitomised Britain’s fighting spirit during the darkest of times with its escapades, landing it a spot in historical folklore.

To this day, the sight and sound of the Spitfire is like no other. Still revered in aeronautical circles, her trim fuselage and graceful cockpit cover are instantly recognisable. Up in the skies you’ll witness the distinctive engine noise and amazing pitch change through every bank and turn.

With a 20 minute Passenger Flight in WWII Spitfire, this really is a once in a lifetime opportunity to relive history aboard one of only 53 airworthy models left in the world. Prepare for shivers down the spine, as you experience everything from the roar of the engine to spellbinding views out over its iconic elliptical wing. So put on your flight suit as this is the chance for an utterly remarkable day, guaranteed to create memories to be cherished forever... Chocks away!
