Prince William Flies Vintage Chipmunk Training Craft During Battle of Britain Memorial Flight

PRINCE William took to the skies in a vintage plane during a memorial flight at RAF Coningsbury yesterday.

William – an air ambulance helicopter pilot – flew the Chipmunk training craft for all but the take-off and landing, sitting in the cockpit in front of Squadron Leader Duncan Mason.

Their plane was joined by a Spitfire and the two flew in formation.

The prince said seeing the wartime fighter in the air alongside was “fantastic”.

Squadron Leader Mason, the officer commanding the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, said: “The great thing about the Prince is he’s a pilot and he just instantly engaged.”  Click link for full post from EXPRESS.
