LEE-ON-SOLENT AIRPORT

Fancy scrambling with your friend into two waiting Spitfire TR9's to intercept an errant ME109 (Bouchon) over the English Channel? Flying in a Spitfire is an incredible experience. But unless you have a military background I doubt you will have much of an idea of how to fight aircraft. I doubt also that you have a great deal of understanding about the fighting characteristics of the Spitfire vs the ME109, and their particular idiosyncrasies. This experience will see you briefed by former fighter pilots about fighter tactics  before you jump into the waiting Spitfires to experience it for yourself. I doubt there is a better experience that can be purchased in this country. Chocks away!

SPITFIRE MK9 MH415 - FOR SALE

G-AVDJ

MH415 was built by the Castle Bromwich Aeroplane factory as a Mk.IX Spitfire under construction number CBAF5542 in 1943. On the 24th September 1943 MH415 claimed a FW-190 ‘Victory’ north-west of Amiens in France whilst being flown by F/O Desmond F. Ruchwaldy during Ramrod 242, a mission to escort 12 Mitchell bombers detailed to attack the Amiens marshalling yards. This Spitfire is a truly exceptional example being over 95% complete of original parts. MH415 stayed fully assembled (other than for shipping and maintenance) from its date of manufacture right through to the commencement or it restoration in 2015 (completed to airworthy in 2021). A truly remarkable aircraft with documented WW2 combat history. It even made an appearance in the 1960’s Michael Caine film, The Battle of Britain.  The aircraft currently wears the livery scheme of RAF 222 (Natal) Squadron ‘ZD-E’ as flown between October to December 1943.

EXETER AIRPORT

Spitfires.com has a number of sites around the country from which it operates remotely. Exeter was the first site that was established away from Goodwood and proved a huge success, so much so that we now visit for a couple of weeks each year bringing a variety of different aircraft each time. Exeter's location on the south coast of Devon makes it ideal venue from which to enjoy flights in warbirds over some of the most beautiful countryside that the country has to offer, including Dartmoor, the rolling lush green hills that Devon is famous for, The Jurassic coastline to the east and beautiful rocky inlets around Dartmouth and Salcombe. In addition the lack of airspace means you  have the ultimate freedom when flying so unless you've chosen to fly alongside another warbird it's unlikely that you'll see another aircraft in the sky. 

HISTORY

In World War II RAF Exeter was an important RAF Fighter Command airfield during the Battle of Britain. RAF Exeter was used by the United States Army Air Forces (USAAF) Ninth Air Force as a D-Day troop transport base with Douglas C-47 Skytrain transports dropping paratroopers near Carentan to land on the Normandy Beachhead.

During the Battle of Britain the RAF's No 10 Group had 307 (Polish) Squadron, 213 Squadron, 87 Squadron and 601 Squadron all based at Exeter Airport. The airfield suffered quite badly from aerial assaults and despite efforts at camouflage, including painting the runways, Exeter still attracted the Luftwaffe and most administrative and technical buildings were destroyed.

HISTORY

Situated almost equidistant between Glasgow and Edinburgh Cumbernauld Airport gives exceptional access to both cities, acting as a gateway to the glorious surroundings of the Scottish Highlands to the north without the restrictions of an International Airport. 

Whilst any route of flight will be considered according to the customer's requests, the majority of our flights will take passengers into the Trossachs for a loop around some of the most spectacular landscapes in the world. And what better way to see it than over the wing of a Spitfire or a P51 Mustang.

Cumbernauld Airport does not have any specific wartime history the man that made it the successful aerodrome it is currently was a wartime Spitfire and Mustang pilot. Post war Duncan McIntosh went on to co-found, and become the Chief Pilot for Loganair, an airline that was set up to provide transport for Willie Logan's employees to the most extreme parts of the Scottish Islands. Now many roads in and around the airport are named after Duncan in his memory.
