This was something that my DW arranged for my 40th birthday as a surprise.
It was a privately owned two seater MK IX Spitfire which was flown over several weekends in the Summer by lads from the RAF who took paying members of the public for a 30 minute spin.
My DW had actually paid for 2 sessions for me and what really surprised me was that once we were airborne, they actually let me take control of the plane....apart from part of the 2nd session when the RAF pilot did his entire airobatic display routine with me as an astonished co-pilot!
It truly was an amazing experience, and I surprised the pilot by not asking him to back off at any time...or throwing up for that matter.
