Did you know, there are nearly 80,000 rivets in a Spitfire…these rivets are pennies but make up a large part of the aircraft and are key. Not every item is as expensive as an engine or a propeller your support therefore no matter how little can go a long way towards our efforts to RULE the world! Just a few pounds, euros or dollars can go a long way to helping see Spitfire P8331 fly again. Equally, we know that there are many historical artefacts in people’s garages, lofts and sheds left over from family relatives and collections. These can be items from a Spitfire such as dials or parts collected as souvenirs during the war years of personal equipment such as uniforms or flying equipment. We are always searching for these items and would be extremely grateful for these types of donations too. We do catalogue all items received for records so that you can ask what happened to your items or how they have been used.

You can now donate to JustGiving page by clicking on the button below. All monies will be used to achieve our goals set out above.
