Saturday 19th November 2011 saw another popular event delighting ‘boys & girls’ of all ages in the thrilling and privileged experience to sit in one of two fully airworthy Spitfires at the RAF’s one-time premier fighter station at Biggin Hill.
Much thanks has to go to ‘Spirit of Kent’ Spitfire owner Peter Monk and his terrific team for their kindness and generosity in trusting and allowing the ‘clumsy-foot’ and ‘sticky-paws’ brigade to sit in the cockpit of such precious machines and magnificent symbols of Great Britain’s heritage. Judging by the beaming smiles of the ‘sitters’, it was very much appreciated by one-and-all.
If this is an experience you’ve yet to have, then the next event is on the weekend of Saturday 31st March and Sunday 1st April 2012. For more information please call the Museum on 01959 524416.
