This is the ultimate aviation experience that gives you a truly unique opportunity to have a view of the heroes of the Battle of Britain in formation together.   Take to the skies from IWM Duxford in our beautiful De Havilland Dragon Rapide for an amazing once in a lifetime experience.

As your soar above the stunning Cambridgeshire countryside you will soon be joined in close formation by the icons of the Second World War – the Supermarine Spitfire and Hawker Hurricane!

The duo of fighters will fly in all four quarters of the Dragon Rapide so that everyone gets a full view of the aircraft and a chance to take some truly stunning photographs.

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

  • A 30 minute flight experience in the Dragon Rapide with formation elements with a Spitfire and Hurricane

  • Meet and greet with the pilots

  • Ground Viewing of the aircraft

  • Professional photograph

  • Flight certificate
