VIRTUAL REALITY ZONE – SATURDAY 26 – SUNDAY 3 NOVEMBER

Step inside the new Virtual Reality Zone and experience the thrill of flying in a Spitfire!  Our Spitfire 360° virtual reality experience will put you 10,000 feet in the air in one of the most iconic cockpits in history.  Once you put on the VR goggles you will be transported into the cockpit of Spitfire and have a fully interactive 360° panoramic view. The 6-minute flight includes engine start, taxi, take off and a circuit of the airfield with low passes, swoops, banks and a loop-de-loop. The experience ends with a landing and taxi into the hangar.
