As winner of the Fly with a Spitfire raffle I thought it only fair to recite the day’s events. With the flying season coming to a close the only booking I could make was for Sunday 25th September at 11 am. The booking was made with the Boultbee Flying Academy based at Goodwood Aerodrome, near Chichester, West Sussex. Boultbee have on their inventory a Mk XI Spitfire, named City of Exeter. They have another Spitfire, not sure what version but could be a TR9, this Spitfire can carry two pilots, ie; dual controls which they use to train pilots to fly Spitfires. They have a Mustang too, although on this specific day it was not seen and other aircraft, a DH Chipmunk in original RAF training school livery for instance.
