SMART LEISURE VIP Spitfire Tour & Sit in a Spitfire

If you’re a fan of these classic aircraft (and let’s face it who isn’t?) our Spitfire Tour is a dream come true. This very special VIP Spitfire tour gives you access to the Biggin Hill Heritage Hangar home to a resplendent collection of Spitfires and other vintage warbirds.What makes this Spitfire tour unique is that it’s a private viewing as the hangar isn’t open to the general public. This is your chance to have a good look around this working hangar witness the everyday goings on see how the talented team works and generally feel rather emotional and overawed by the whole thing (as we were when we went!).You’ll be met by one of the Spitfire team on arrival and shown through reception. Somewhat innocuous from the outside this place is a true treasure trove for aviation fans. As soon as the door from the office area to the main hangar is opened the view will take your breath away. Never before will you have seen so many priceless aircraft all in one place!And what really stands out is that it is all so much more real and somehow interactive than your usual aircraft museum. This is where all the wonderful restoration work is done where many of the planes are housed after they’ve been certified airworthy and also where other privately owned examples of Spitfires are hangared.You can get properly up close to these aircraft (so much so that you can catch a whiff of that distinctive smell of leather and oil!) but as it is a working environment you will be accompanied on your Spitfire tour for your own safety – and also so your host can explain everything there is to know about these majestic winged residents.Your VIP tour takes on an extra dimension with you clambering in to the Spitfire to sit in that hot seat. Just try and imagine what it was like for many young pilots who were gallantly protecting our skies during the Second World War in these beautiful flying machines.
