NEW Live Spitfire appearances at Capel-le-Ferne 2014

The Trust is delighted with the support provided by Action Stations! the company that flies passengers in a fixed wing aircraft alongside a Spitfire and, on occasions, a Hurricane.

The local 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 aircraft.

Mk Vb Spitfire BM597, flown by Charlie Brown, is due back over Capel-le-Ferne again in 2014, with the flying weekends beginning in April. This year Action Stations! has also included an Me109 in its exciting programme. There are flights every month through to September, so don’t miss your chance to see the Spitfire as she was meant to be seen – from the air.

The 2014 Action Stations! Flying Programme is nearly complete but has been left here to give you an idea of the kind of events likely to be organised for 2015.
