That's just a negotiating position, whats it going to cost on top of the flight tickets....


Just time to burn a little more petrol before dinner.

The ultimate question. The answer is probably 42. The problem is, I don't know if that is pence, pounds or carats.

I agree with others-you can’t take it with you.
I did this 5 years ago for my birthday. My late grandfather serviced Spits during the war and he was all I could think of as I walked to the beauty with a bit of dust in my eye. It had been no 1 on the bucket list since the age of about 6 which I never expected to be possible and was an experience that in practice truly exceeded my wildest hopes. The pilot handed control over as soon as we left the ground which was a nice surprise, so he let me do the barrel rolls etc too.
Utterly brilliant once in a lifetime thing and can’t recommend highly enough.... I accept I may be biased....

Very jealous. Would love a flight.
I did enquire a while ago when I was feeling flush but you're right, a real mickey take asking for that amount of cash for video of your head bobbing about. Especially after you have just shelled out 2.5 -3 k for the flight ?

I did my flight a few years ago from Biggin Hill. A fabulous experience. The safety briefing videos are hilarious- it’s almost as though they are trying to scare you out of flying.

Favourite moment was when I flew a Barrel Roll over the M25. I wasn’t charged extra to see the back of my helmet- you can just about hear me over the engine when I complete the Roll. I think it was just a shout of elation!

Utter respect to the people who flew these in earnest.
