Thank U NHS Spitfire to visit Telford

Thank U NHS Spitfire to visit Telford

Spitfire will take flight this coming Tuesday 18th August and fly by local Telford communities and hospital.

The UK may have seen images of the ’THANK U NHS’ Spitfire, but they are now being offered a unique opportunity to nominate ‘loved ones' whose names are being hand written onto the family-owned Aircraft Restoration Company's iconic, blue photo-reconnaissance Spitfire as it takes flight to raise funds for NHS Charities Together.

The names will be nominated by the public as a way of recognising small acts of kindness throughout the Covid-19 pandemic. From a family member to a kind neighbour, close friend or community hero, the public can now thank them with this special gesture. In return for their donation, their nominated name will be one of those written on the Spitfire, which has an 80,000 name capacity. As the names are added, the UK will be able to watch this extraordinary visual spectacle unfold.

The JustGiving/NHSSpitfire donations window is open. The aim is to lift the spirits of those across the UK, whilst also thanking the hospitals, communities and individuals who have been at the forefront of getting the country through the pandemic. This Spitfire was specifically built and used for photo reconnaissance during the conflict, carrying cameras instead of weapons. It was also flown and air-raced by the famous female ATA pilot Lettice Curtis.

The public will be able to view progress updates and carefully planned local flight routes via the Aircraft Restoration Company Instagram & Facebook & website. During these routes it will fly past communities and hospitals around mainland UK.

Please note due to current unpredictability of weather, flight routes may be postponed if low cloud or rain prohibits us from flying. Updates via @AircraftRestorationCompany Instagram or Facebook.
