Flying in a vintage 1943 De-Havilland Dragon Rapide at Duxford Imperial War Museum; up close with a Spitfire and vintage UK airliners. I hope you'll enjoy this video, it's a little unusual for me as it was filmed at a museum. A visit to Duxford gives an opportunity to take a Classic Flights vintage aircraft scenic tour. Slightly apprehensive about boarding a 1943 Dragon Rapide, my anxiety all but disappeared as the Gipsy Queen engines were throttled up for takeoff. With huge windows, and room for only 8 passengers, this was probably as close I would ever get to first class, albeit somewhat ageing! The video was filmed in 4K Ultra HD at 50fps for best quality. Watch a short clip of a Spitfire starting up, taxiing and takeoff followed by a few manoeuvres and then the flight on the Dragon Rapide. I hope you enjoy the sights and sounds of the aircraft, the views over Cambridgeshire and the landing back at Duxford.
