For our 40th birthday, FlyPast teamed up with Aero Legends to offer one lucky winner the flight of a lifetime. Tara Leggett recalls the day from start to finish
Back in April 2021, FlyPast launched its competition for a reader to win a flight in a Spitfire, courtesy of Aero Legends, as part of the magazine’s 40th birthday celebrations. It offered one lucky reader the opportunity to win a flight in Aero Legend’s two-seater Spitfire T.9 NH341 Elizabeth. As well as this, the flight would be captured by FlyPast’s regular air-to-air lensman Darren Harbar in an in-formation photography experience. The flight, worth approximately £3,000, would take place at Aero Legend’s facility at North Weald.
