About the experience

Attention all aviation enthusiasts! Prepare for the ride of a lifetime with our luxury Spitfire flying packages at IWM Duxford in Cambridgeshire. If you're a fan of World War Two aircraft, this experience is a must-try. Our Wing Commander package offers a full day of adventure, including an up-close encounter with N3200, a Mk1a Spitfire that flew only one mission during World War Two. This Spitfire led the charge to protect the Allied Forces during the 'Operation Dynamo' evacuation and was shot down over Calais before being restored to its magnificent glory in 1986. But that's not all. The highlight of these packages is flying beside N320 in a Dragon Rapide. You'll hear the unmistakable sound of the Spitfire's Merlin engine before witnessing its breathtaking beauty up close. After landing, you'll enjoy a Champagne reception and a ground tour of the Spitfire and the Dragon Rapide. You'll have the chance to ask questions, take photos, and get a professional photograph of yourself next to the Spitfire, which is included in your package. You'll also enjoy a tasty lunch at the airfield restaurant and have plenty of time to explore IWM Duxford. Don't miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to fly in a Spitfire and experience the thrill of a lifetime. Book now and add a new level of excitement to your passion for aviation.
