We are pleased to introduce the Molly Rose Spitfire, named after the heroine aviatrix of the Attagirls novel. The 90% scale model was built by the team at Enstone Flying Club, the home of the incredible Spitfire Squadron. Plans are to build a squadron of 12 Spitfires.
Enstone Flying Club Managing Director Paul said: “It has to be the most iconic aircraft ever made and undoubtedly one of the most elegantly shaped fighters ever conceived. The Spitfire’s silhouette is etched into the British psyche, I defy anyone not to look skyward when they hear and then see a Spitfire overhead. No other aircraft can do a victory roll quite like the Spitfire, it’s a sight that lifts your very soul.”
Enstone Flying Club also has a fully operational Spitfire Simulator to create a truly memorable experience. The cockpit section is a full scale replica of a Spitfire Mk9 with authentic controls and a seat feedback system. The wrap around screen gives an almost 220 degree view and with Dolby 5.1 surround sound compliments the immersive experience. The simulator has a combat capability, to test your skills against fighters and bombers.
