THE SPITFIRE

A name etched into history thanks to the heroic actions of 'The Few' young pilots holding off the numerically superior Luftwaffe during the height of the Battle of Britain in the early days of WWII. 

Ultimate Warbird Flights are delighted to offer you the chance to experience what it was like for those pilots and take the controls of this legendary fighter for yourself with an unforgettable flight in our very own Supermarine  Spitfire. 

Hear the roar of the mighty Rolls Royce Merlin, feel the incredible manoeuvrability of the famed elliptical wing, and experience the ultimate in Spitfire Flight experiences with Ultimate Warbird Flights.

A LEGEND IN HER OWN RIGHT

Supermarine Spitfire ML407, affectionately known as 'The Grace Spitfire', was originally built at Castle Bromwich in early 1944 as a Mark IX single seat fighter and served in the front line of battle throughout the last twelve months of World War II with six different allied Squadrons of the RAF’s 2nd Tactical Air Force. 

ML407 flew a total of 176 operational combat sorties amassing an impressive total 319 combat hours. ML407 was delivered to 485 New Zealand Squadron on the 29th April 1944 by Jackie Moggridge, one of the top lady pilots of the Air Transport Auxiliary (ATA), where it became the ‘mount’ of Flying Officer Johnnie Houlton DFC who was accredited, whilst flying ML407, with the first enemy aircraft shot down over the Normandy beachhead on 6th June D-Day.
