Why buy from us?
Take a seat with history in this TR9 two-seater Spitfire flight, departing from the historic Biggin Hill Airport in Kent and flying over Leeds Castle dating back to 857. If you’re a history or aviation enthusiast, you’ll simply be spoiled for choice with this extensive experience. Not only will you be enjoying a departure from Biggin Hill, a former essential base throughout the Battle of Britain in World War Two, but be seated in a vehicle with a long history. This G-BMSB still has its log book attached, where you can read about the flying ground attacks and patrol missions throughout WW2 and its eventual conversion from a MJ627 to a TR9. Beautifully restored to make it flight worthy today and part of the rare cohort of Spitfires that can still be taken into the skies, this is a must experience for aviation enthusiasts but particularly those who are enamoured with these rare planes. In this journey, you will fly over the Kent countryside and be treated to a birdseye view of the ancient Leeds castle over in Maidstone, whilst experiencing Victory Rolls and other exciting manoeuvres in the skies. We know just how unique this experience is, so we’ve even included a flight recording, flight suit patch and pilot notes to take home with you as a keepsake. Aside from the flying, you and up to four guests can enjoy a Spitfire Factory Tour and have access to the garden area, viewing platform and 1940s dispersal lounge making it an aviation day out for all the family. This once in a lifetime experience is worth every penny as you take to the skies over Kent in one of history’s most recognised planes to grace the skies.
