Live Spitfire appearances at Capel-le-Ferne 2015

The Trust is generously supported by Action Stations! the company that flies passengers in a fixed wing aircraft alongside a Spitfire and, on occasions, a Hurricane. On two occasions in 2015 the company will also be flying alongside the legendary B17 Sally B.

Many of the Kent-based flights 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 for the paying passengers in the aircraft.

Mk Vb Spitfire BM597, flown by Charlie Brown, will be back over Capel-le-Ferne again on a number of occasions in 2015, with the flying weekends beginning in May. There are flights every month through to September – including some alongside a Hurricane – giving a number of chances to see these graceful aircraft as they were meant to be seen – from the air.

The Kent events are all run from Lydd Airport. The flying programme – subject, of course, to the weather – is as follows:

Spitfire Spring Event (Spitfire)
Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 May

Father’s Fighter Weekend (Spitfire and Hurricane)
Friday 19 through to Sunday 21 June

Steve’s Spitfire Weekend (Spitfire)

Spitfire Summer Weekend (Spitfire)

Battle of Britain 75th Anniversary (Spitfire and Hurricane)
