Put your winnings towards an extraordinary experience that’ll allow you to relive history in the flight of a lifetime, aboard one of only 53 Spitfire airworthy models left in the world. To this day, the iconic sight and sound of the Spitfire is unlike any other. Epitomising Britain’s fighting spirit during the Battle of Britain and WWII, its Rolls Royce Merlin Engine and graceful cockpit cover are instantly recognisable as Britain’s front line fighter in the darkest of times.

You’ll get a 30-minute passenger flight and 20 minutes airborne, allowing you to experience everything from the roar of the engine to spellbinding views out over its iconic elliptical wing. Flown by a current or ex-RAF pilot, you can rest assured knowing full well you’re in safe hands. And as your location benefits from no commercial traffic, you’ll feel like you have the skies all to yourself! The aerodrome has plenty of space, so bring along all your friends and family to witness your unforgettable experience.
