Location

Chichester, West Sussex


Experience Details

Watch as the Spitfire Mk IX and Hurricane Mk I fire up their Rolls-Royce Merlin engines then board the helicopter and take to the skies where the Battle of Britain was won. Heading towards RAF Tangmere, which houses a museum nowadays, the Spitfire and Hurricane will 'buzz you' before joining in close formation. After a few minutes on either side of the helicopter, giving stunning close-up views of these spectacular aircraft in flight, the pair break formation, peeling off from the helicopter as you reach the Solent. The show is far from over however as the helicopter is hunted by the pair of them on the flight back to base.
