  • Wingtip-to-wingtip with a Spitfire

    Had one of the most amazing, memorable experiences of my life today, flying wingtip-to-wingtip with a Spitfire. Utterly beautiful and graceful in her natural element, it's something else to be up there with one, almost close enough to touch! I can recommend it to anyone who loves planes or just exceptional machinery in general!

            Does look brilliant. But the price is mad. I had a look at the spit fire flight. Nearly 3000 lol.

              yeh, that's what I said above.............would be worth it though. We all said yesterday that if what we paid helps keep these amazing warbirds flying for years to come, it's worth it

                You do get to take the controls for a bit on that one though don't you? It's alot of money but if you can afford it then why not, once in a lifetime experience and as you say it helps them stay in the air

                  Yes, you do get to take the controls. If I had the money spare, or could even work out the man-maths in my favour, I'd do it in a heartbeat! So would my dad, but I think mum had other ideas!

                    Trying an alternative to Photobucket as they've pulled the plug on some accounts!

                          Nice pictures Rob, glad you did it as I know you had been talking about it for some time, what an experience.

                          Money well spent I would say.

                          Cheers Marcus.
