Become a Spitfire Pilot

Put on your VR Goggles and enjoy 6 thrilling minutes as a Spitfire pilot. Experience taking off to 10,000 feet, circling a Kentish airfield with low passes and looping-de-loop - all the time enjoying 360° panoramic views as you fly. An experience so real, you'll believe you're piloting the aircraft yourself.

The footage for the Spitfire 360° was created especially for the RAF Museum and enables you to have a feel of what it is like flying a Spitfire. Its all-around view provides an insight in how the pilot handles the controls during taking off and while throwing the Spitfire from a loop to a tight turn.
