When visiting London with two friends, we had the privilege to be taken on a historical tour by my blip friend Skeena. We first visited the Biggin Hill Heritage Hanger where we, among other aircrafts, could see several Spitfires in good condition. I’ve had a dream since boyhood to once in my life fly a Spitfire. I have been informed that it’s a good idea to find a two-seater to be able to fulfil this dream. I think they had two at Biggin Hill. And age isn’t a problem. To oldest “back seat pilot” so far was 97. But there is another problem. Check the website to find out.
Next stop was Chartwell – the family home and garden of Sir Winston Churchill. Today’s extra shows a detail of a cane from the studio of the painter Sir Winston. Before going back to London, we had a drive around Westerham, Otford with a quick stop at Lullingstone Castle.
