"Absoloutely Brilliant Experience."

FLY WITH A SPITFIRE EXPERIENCE

A fly with a Spitfire experience is a spine tingling mix of aerial artistry and flying theatre. The Spitfire suddenly appears as your wingman, flying within smiling distance. She manoeuvres around you with breathtaking ease. The de Havilland Devon, an ex RAF passenger aircraft, propels you through the air at the correct operational speed for the Spitfire to dance around your panoramic window. Air to air photo shoots like this don’t get any better!

YOUR DAY WITH US

ARRIVAL

Aero Legends staff greet you at the Aero Legends dispersal hut and proceed with your check-in. Sywell and Headcorn Aerodromes both have free parking and good facilities with excellent viewing areas of the runway. Each aerodrome has a café and licenced bar, we encourage your family and friends to savour the atmosphere and share your day.

YOUR AIRCRAFT

We fly our guests in an ex-RAF 1946 de Havilland Devon, famously used by Air Chief Marshall Sir Basil Embry as his personal transport during his time as Commander Of Allied Forces, Central Europe. In 1985 the aircraft joined the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight (BBMF) at RAF Coningsby, where the aircraft was used as a crew transport in support of the BBMF Lancaster, Spitfires and Hurricanes. The Devon is a comfortable aircraft inside, with roomy seats and large panoramic windows. There are excellent photo opportunities.

PHOTOGRAPHY AND VIDEO

Soon after take-off you will be thrilled as the Spitfire draws alongside. Now you are flying in the very airspace where some of the most intense battles were fought. The sight of the Spitfire being put through its paces takes your breath away and your heart races as you imagine the emotions of the pilots in ‘the long hot summer of 1940’. – a photographer’s dream shot! Spectators and family members are welcomed to take photos and videos from the ample viewing areas assigned at each aerodrome.
