About the experience

Step back in time to the 1930s with a companion as you board a De Havilland Dragon Rapide flight for two over London, departing from the historic Duxford Airfield. Although this beautifully compact and well restored plane will take you back a fair few centuries as you look out through the struts and double silver wings, there will be no avoiding the sprawling London skyline as you gently float at 90 knots above it. This flight path will take you all along the Lea Valley towards London as you are treated to panoramic views over well known landmarks such as the O2, the towers of Canary Wharf, St Pauls and even the Houses of Parliament. Contrasting the old against the new in a spectacular way, this flight experience will make you see the city from a different perspective as you reflect on how much it has changed since the 1930s when the Dragon Rapide’s were first being used in the Royal Air Force and Royal Navy. After all, if this type of plane was good enough for King Edward VIII who owned one, it’s probably worth a trip in too, don’t you think?. Not only will you be treated to incredible views across the city, but this ticket also includes entry to the IWM Duxford so you and the rest of the family can make a day of it, and continue learning about aviation history until your heart's content. This is the perfect experience for history lovers, aviation enthusiasts and those who love the City of London and want to see it in style from new heights.
