We accomplished our first series of Spitfire cost share flights. These were flown from another location due to the inclement weather forecast, we were not confident the runway at Headcorn would be dry enough after the previous days rain.
In lieu of our policy of giving advance notice to cost sharers we chose to reschedule the event, however those cost sharers that we could not contact we flew from another location with a hard runway.
Most cost sharers have been rescheduled in August. Afterwards we received a very nice e-mail from one of our cost sharers,
‘Thank you for an amazing day! I don’t think I’m quite back down to earth yet. The Spitfire flight was everything I could have wished for .. and more! I felt really lucky to have the extra time and it was thrilling to fly. It was well worth the drive ! I feel very privileged to have had the opportunity to fly in a Spitfire. Thank you for making a dream come true.We have received a fantastic photo … a sample of what is to come. The clarity is incredible! We look forward to seeing the rest. Thank you for arranging these unique photos! A big thank you to the photographer and her husband for flying and taking them.We were very well looked after and I would like to thank the whole team for making it such a memorable occasion, with the added pleasure of meeting a veteran!I’d like to thank you in particular for working so hard to make it happen..
