For the first time ever the public will have the chance to get behind the controls of the iconic aircraft as it flies over the stunning Devon countryside and coastline. It will operate from Exeter Airport and the public will have the opportunity to fly in the Boultbee Flight Academy two seat Spitfire SM520. But some will even have the chance to fly in this Spitfire as it flies in formation with another single seat Spitfire RR232 aptly named ‘City of Exeter’. The ‘City of Exeter’ Spitfire was built from a single rivet by Exeter based ‘Tool Care Hire’ owner Martin Philips.
