This cockpit recording shows Prince Harry flying as a passenger in a Spitfire flight from Boultbee Flight Academy at Goodwood via the Isle of Wight. This was recorded when Prince Harry went to meet Alan Robinson and Nathan Forster - the two successful candidates of an Endeavour Fund backed Spitfire Scholarship, which the Prince launched last year to get two wounded servicemen flying the classic machine. The scholarship draws inspiration from the pilot Douglas Bader who flew throughout the Second World War with 20 individual aerial victories despite losing both his legs in 1931. It will culminate with both Alan and Nathan flying with 35 Spitfires and Hurricanes in the South of England Flypast on the 15th of September this year to mark the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain.
Please note due to the nature of the cockpit recording, the sound quality of this clip is not good.
