I live under their flight path out of Biggin Hill where they do the customer flights.

So all day long it’s flying over us doing barrel rolls etc. Very entertaining

It was for a fly past at the funeral of Geoffrey Pyne, one of the last (if not the last) D-Day veteran

Thank you, it did have me wondering why.

What a fitting tribute.

I saw a Spitfire do a couple of barrel rolls over Labrador Bay, Devon a few days ago while fishing in a small boat about a mile offshore. I am told it's the one out of Exeter airport doing pleasure trips.
If you fancy a thrill the link to book up is flag HERE flag

I play golf in Gravesend and one of the Biggin Hill Spitfires is regularly seen doing customer flights overhead - usually doing a barrel roll as it flies over the Thames.

My wife flew in a Spitfire from Biggin Hill to Dover and back for a 60th Birthday present. She has never got over the amazing life experience and treasures the memory as one of the best things ever.

Recently saw either two Spits over somerset or the same one going in a different direction. Here's a shot of a mate (1952 DHC +4 owner) having a flight from Exeter in 2018 - he loved it.
