We Have Chosen The Best Passenger Aircraft For You To See The Spitfire In Flight

de Havilland Dove

"for the Spitfire to show you its true flying colours and provide perfect photos, you have to fly with it at sufficient speed. Our experiences showed us that the Bell 206L LongRanger helicopter and the de Havilland Dragon Rapide were both too slow. In 2015 we acquired the ex-RAF 1946 de Havilland Devon. Finally, Britain has a vintage passenger aircraft fast enough to fly with a Spitfire."

Thank you for a totally awesome and unforgettable day. The Fly With A Spitfire experience is amazing, and exceeded all my expectations. You are all excellent hosts making everyone feel special. The flight is as awesome in the de Havilland Dove/Devon as it looks from outside. Special kudos to the pilots Ben Cox and Brian Smith for their excellent aerial choreography....David Baldwin
