    The Spitfire Museum is holding a one day celebratory event to make the 72nd anniversary of the first operational flight of the ‘Manston Spitfire’ on Sunday 19 March, 2017.

    The event is free of charge, but all donations are very gratefully received and go towards running the Museum and improving our visitor services.

    Please note that all car parking (apart from disabled) is on the northern grass. Please refer to the photos above and below for a list of what’s on and directions to the car park.

    The Spitfire Museum would like to thank the following for supporting our event:

    Stone Hill Park Limited, Biggin Hill Heritage Hangar, Powermain Limited and Kent Events.

    We look forward to seeing all our visitors and supporters on the 19th.

Donations are very gratefully received. Not only because they let us know that we enjoy the support and interest of our visitors but also because, like many charities, we can claim Gift Aid support which could add an additional 20% to our donated income.
