NHS Spitfire Hospital Fly-Past – 16th & 17th September

A Supermarine Spitfire aircraft will fly over several UK hospitals including Glasgow’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital tomorrow as part of an NHS charity fundraiser.

The NHS Spitfire project, which is organised by the Aircraft Restoration Company, offers people the chance to nominate a name to be hand written onto their iconic blue Spitfire.

There is room for 80,000 names on the aircraft, with more than £81,000 raised for NHS charities so far.

The Spitfire will fly over the Queen Elizabeth Hospital at 2.25pm tomorrow as part of a full-day itinerary flying over UK hospitals, so keep your eyes peeled for the dramatic sight!

A statement from the organisation reads:

“We hope to see as many of you as possible throughout the duration of this project and will be flying a number of routes across different parts of the nation throughout the year. You can show others were you have seen the Spitfire by tagging any pictures or videos you capture with the hashtag #NHSSPITFIRE.”

Many thanks to ACCC Member Paul Meechan for the heads up !!
