Our static displays with supporting RAF Groundcrew, dressed in period uniform may be the unique addition that your event has been looking for.
Our display enables your visitors a unique opportunity to sit in the cockpit of these iconic Spitfire aircraft and have their photographs taken, using their own camera equipment for a small donation to our fundraising projects. Over the past four years, our centrepiece Mark IX, affectionately known as “Our Lucy” has had extensive refurbishment work with much of the cockpit re-equipped with its original instruments and controls. To add to this unique experience additional sound and light features have been added to give the would-be Pilot a real feel for life as a World War Two Fighter Pilot.
Our expert team of volunteers will give fact-filled talks during your event, helping bring to life the reality of dog fighting tactics during World War Two. In addition to the aircraft, we are also able to provide in support of the Aircraft original ground support equipment displays, including the UK’s last roadworthy Bedford QL RAF Fuel Bowser which saw active service with Bomber Command from 1944.
Our appearance fee is very competitive and aimed to simply cover our transportation and public liability insurance costs as well as helping the future expansion of the RAF Memorial and Fylde Coast Museum projects.
