  • Spitfire MJ627 flight

    So, the day finally arrived when I achieved one of my dreams, and flew in a genuine WW2 combat-veteran Spitfire this morning! Everything and more I hoped it would, took the controls for a quarter of the flight, did a victory roll over Brands Hatch - bloody awesome in every way! Was glad to have Pete along to experience it too, so when I keep talking about it incessantly in the future, there'll be at least one person who can understand and doesn't just roll their eyes

        Looks a awesome day. Great pictures. And I have to say Pete looks so tall next to the pilot. Or was there a 2 foot slope???
