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 and its non-military sister the Dove were exceptionally successful, proving reliable and economical in service. They became one of the best selling British aircraft of the 1950’s. The Devon is a comfortable aircraft inside, with roomy seats and large panoramic windows. There are excellent photo opportunities.
In The Air
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 Battle Of Britain pilots in ‘the long hot summer of 1940’. The backdrop is Headcorn Aerodrome and the surrounding countryside.

Last Saturday was just a fantastic day, from start to finish. Thank you so much for giving us an opportunity to get so close to some really wonderful participants in aviation history – and participants in our nation’s history. The team were all very welcoming and helpful, and full of interesting information.
We just wanted to say thank you for a wonderful day yesterday. From booking to the day of the Spitfire experience all went to plan and my husband had a great time.
I just wanted to email you, to thank you for a fantastic day yesterday. Everyone at Aero Legends was really friendly, helpful and attentive throughout the day, and Parky was an absolute pleasure to talk to. All 3 of us were blown away by it, which surpassed our expectations…….a truly fantastic experience and a memory all 3 of us will treasure, particularly having the experience together.
