This cockpit video from the The Royal Channel, the official channel of the British Monarchy, shows Britain's Prince Harry flying as a passenger in a World War II Spitfire. The flight took place at Boultbee Flight Academy Goodwood over the Isle of Wight. It was recorded when the Prince met Alan Robinson and Nathan Forster - the two successful candidates of the Spitfire Scholarship, which the Prince launched last year as part of his Endeavour Fund 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 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. The sound quality may not be the best but the video is great.
