There are few aircraft that can stir more patriotic feelings than a Supermarine Spitfire, a hero flown by heroes during the dark days of the Second World War. The look, the noise and the aerial abilities all go together to make a plane that everyone remembers when the see it, and now you can either fly in or alongside a Spitfire over the picturesque countryside of Northamptonshire. There’s sky-high tours over Castle Ashby and the Eyebrook Reservoir (where they tested the Dambusters run), already special with a seat in a de Havilland Devon and made even more magical when a Spitfire rolls into view just outside your window to engage in some aerobatic manoeuvres. You’ll be able to sit in the cockpit while it’s waiting on the airfield, but if that isn’t enough we’re offering a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to take to the skies in one. With a flight suit and parachute on for ultimate authenticity, it’ll be hard not to imagine yourself as one of WWII’s brilliant fighting aces for the flight of your life.
