We are extremely grateful to the generous organisations that are supporting the restoration to flight. Restoring a Spitfire is no easy task and as such we are working with a number of specialised companies to make that first flight for AA810 a reality. Work began on preparation and inventorying of the wreckage in September 2018 and the restoration will begin as soon as this first important step is completed. First flight is currently expected in 2023/24 and we aim to attend airshows far and wide with what is truly a unique aircraft.
We wouldn’t be able to do this if it wasn’t for the generosity of those that back us and we really would like to draw attention to those that are making this possible:
Spitfire Heritage Gin
Spitfire Heritage Gin is created by master distiller and world champion gin maker John Walters and is created in the UK. In support of the Spitfire Heritage Trust, the authentic 1930s single estate, small batch botanical craft gin combines romance, authenticity and flavour which justifies its position as one of Britain’s best artisan gins and one of the top selling gins at the world famous Harrods store in London.
Spitfire Heritage Distillers also produce Supermarine Vodka, which beats at the heart of the company’s gin production, and has now been produced as a product in its own right. Spitfire Gin and Supermarine Vodka are distilled in Cambridgeshire in hand beaten copper stills and we are proud that they are supporting us in our goal of returning AA810 to the skies.
You can help us by purchasing your gin or vodka stocks for yourselves, friends and family from Spitfire Heritage for every bottle they sell, they will donate £3.50 from the proceeds directly to the project.
