The Trust is delighted with the support provided by Action Stations! the company that flies passengers in helicopters alongside a Spitfire and, on occasions, a Hurricane.
The flights always take in the famous White Cliffs and the National Memorial to the Few, and that provides a real treat for visitors on the ground as well as the paying passengers in the helicopters.
Mk Vb Spitfire BM597, flown by Charlie Brown, is due back over Capel-le-Ferne again in 2013, with the flying weekends beginning in March. This year Action Stations! has included back up weekends in March and April just in case the weather affects the programme. There are flights every month from March through to October, so don’t miss your chance to see the Spitfire as she was meant to be seen – from the air.
