Aero Legends Ltd has now acquired the Go Action Stations brand and launches the UK’s first vintage RAF fly alongside a Spitfire experience. The first Aero Legends/Action Stations combined event took place on the 26th September 2015.
Passengers waiting to fly alongside a Spitfire were pleasantly surprised to be flying in an ex-RAF and BBMF de Havilland Devon vintage aircraft of the same era as the Spitfire. The Devon’s large panoramic windows enabled the best photographic opportunities ever seen on a fly alongside experience. The commercial passenger version of the Devon, named the Dove, was Britain’s first successful post-war civil aircraft. Operating the de Havilland Devon and the Spitfire from the historic WWII Airfield known as RAF Lashenden (now known as Headcorn Aerodrome) provided the perfect backdrop for this event.
Passengers flew in authentic Battle of Britain airspace over some iconic land marks which included, Leeds Castle, Dover Castle, the Battle of Britain Memorial and the White Cliffs of Dover Coastline.
Action Stations and Aero Legends are now taking bookings for their 2016 Vintage Fly With A Spitfire events.
