A Battle of Britain fighter formation duo.
Now booking for 18th May 2019
This is a truly amazing combination of two very special experiences with the rare chance to experience the best of two worlds. Firstly flying in the mighty Warbird with the chance to take the controls yourself. If this is not exciting enough, you will then be joined by not one but two Battle of Britain fighters – the Spitfire and Hurricane.
They will join you in formation and fly alongside your aircraft, giving you the exhilarating feeling of flying alongside two of the world’s best loved and most famous aircraft.
The duo of fighters will fly alongside and around you so that you get fabulous views of both aircraft together. After your flight there will be ample chance to look around the aircraft on the ground, take photographs and talk with the pilots that make this incredible experience possible.
These flights will be very limited so book early to avoid missing out.
All the action takes place at IWM Duxford, Europe’s premier aviation museum, an important fighter base for the RAF, and home of the first Spitfire.
Spend the day immersed in the nostalgia of WWII and the Battle of Britain, surrounded by flying legends of the Second World War. All the aircraft we fly on these events are genuine Second World War aircraft that would have participated in some way, either as fighters or trainers
Your ultimate WWII experience will include…
A 30 minute flight experience in the Harvard with formation elements with a Spitfire and Hurricane
Meet and greet with the pilots
Ground Viewing of the aircraft
Guided tour of the Battle of Britain Hangar
Glass of Champagne
Free entry to IWM Duxford
Discounted entry for your friends and family
