About the experience

Hey history buffs! Here's an incredible opportunity for you: a wing-to-wing flight experience with a 'Squadron Leader' Spitfire and a beautiful De Havilland Dragon Rapide over Duxford's skies. The Spitfire, renowned for its role in defending against Luftwaffe air attacks during the Battle of Britain, holds a special place in aviation history, with a whopping 20,341 built – more than any other British combat aircraft of World War Two. Let's not forget the De Havilland, typically known for leisure and business flying, but during the war, it played its part in passenger and communication duties. Duxford, a former RAF aerodrome, carries a rich history as the first home to a Spitfire flying squadron and now houses the impressive Imperial War Museum Duxford. Your adventure kicks off with a meet and greet at the operator's booking office on the flightline. Then, it's time to take off! Once aboard the De Havilland, you'll soar into the skies with the Spitfire closely following – an unforgettable experience, to say the least. After touchdown, you've got the whole day to explore the museum's plane collections and wander through various exhibition hangars. Plus, you get complimentary same-day entry to the museum with your flight booking. Don't miss out on this amazing opportunity – book your voucher now!
