History buffs and avionic aficionados will be delighted with the gift of a flight in a classic Spitfire airplane.  This experience, offered by Virgin Airlines, lets one relive one of the high points of the Battle of Britain.  During the darkest days of battle, the effectiveness of the Supermarine Spitfire epitomized Britain’s fighting spirit. Participants in this exclusive experience will be greeted by their pilot and then given a briefing on the history of the aircraft.  This Spitfire was operated by the RAF before being converted to the two seater that it is today, and only a handful exist.  Don a flight suit and parachute before flying back in time, metaphorically.  Enjoy 20 minutes of amazing flight time as a passenger on one of the most iconic British aircraft of all time.
