Spitfire pilots return to Goodwood

Two British pilots have touched down on home soil, after flying around the world in a restored Spitfire, with the paintwork stripped to a shining aluminium finish. Steve Brooks, 58, from Burford, Oxfordshire, and Matt Jones, 45, from Exeter, took four months to circumnavigate the globe in the first trip of its kind in a Spitfire. They stopped off in 100 locations, across 30 countries. The project, called Silver Spitfire – The Longest Flight, started and finished at Goodwood Aerodrome, the base of Boultbee Flight Academy, the first-ever school for Spitfire pilots, in West Sussex.
