The Spitfire is much more than a vintage aircraft

 

It is a Great British icon that symbolises the coming together of all the nations of the Commonwealth, as we stood together in defence of our common human values and freedoms.

 

The Spitfire Heritage Trust is robustly engaged in the strengthening of links and the development of programs that create opportunities, educate, celebrate and give thanks to our Commonwealth family of nations, and to our shared values that transcend culture, religion and gender.

Creating opportunities, Educating and Celebrating our futures born from our past.
