 Spitfire start ups. 

Spitfire start ups. These can be booked through Richard Bass at the Spitfire RAF display. Please note there is a charge of 35 to cover fuel and maintenance. The 27Ltr Rolls Royce engine  engine burns between 1 to 1 1/2 gallons a minute of 100 octane aviation fuel. You will be able to sit in the cockpit for around 20 minutes and start up and run the engine for two minutes. This is the maximum time it can be run before it starts to over heat. There are limited slots as the engine takes a long time to cool down so booking times are approximate. First come first served. 

Dicky Bass and the battle for Europe crew will be setting up their display around the Spitfire at this years show.

All re enactors, displays and military vehicle owners will be admitted free to the show, camping and evening party. You must have booked in and must be part of a display, walk in re enactors who are not booked in should apply for tickets.
