#2 Heritage Hangar Tour + Sit In Spitfire


One of our first ever competitions!

A guided tour of the many Spitfires based at the Heritage Hangar, including the restoration projects, along with sitting in the cockpit of a Spitfire!

Winner is: Flynn Cremin

Ticket number: 67 Answer: Supermarine


There is a maximum of 75 entries for this competition.

The Heritage Hangar was founded in early 2011 to house the activities of The Spitfire Company (Biggin Hill) Limited, with the purpose of restoring a single Spitfire. From this it has grown to the point where it has now a whole squadron’s worth and completed its sixth airworthy example. At any one time, the hangar is a hive of activity with several ongoing restorations. In the past up close access to Spitfires has been available to only a lucky few, but now you can take a tour round the facility and see at first hand what goes into putting a Spitfire back in the air, how they are maintained and what is involved in their day to day running.

You’ll also have the privilege to sit inside the cockpit of a Spitfire too!

Location: Biggin Hill Airport, Kent
