Spitfire Flights: Reminders of Victory and Sources of New Experiences
The history of the United Kingdom is riddled with vicious battles against foreign aggressors, mostly during the past World Wars. The Second World War earned the nation one of the most significant triumphs in history: the victory over Germany during the Battle of Britain. For the most part, Britain owes this achievement to what was then the pinnacle of technology: the Spitfire.
A recently posted article for HelloMagazine.com featured Prince Harry’s experience flying and riding a Spitfire. The Spitfire flight was in conjunction with the launching of a Spitfire Flight Scholarship for wounded ex-servicemen, a project run by Boultbee Flight Academy in partnership with The Royal Foundation’s Endeavour Fund. The purpose of the program is to honour and inspire the wounded, injured, and sick service personnel and veterans.
