I am delighted to welcome you to the Mk XIX Spitfire app, which has been an incredibly poignant project for the team and I to work on.
With 2015 marking the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain, this year is especially important for the Heritage Flight team. We remain honoured to fly such a prestigious aircraft, which strongly represents the values of Rolls-Royce, but which also touches the hearts and minds of those who watch PS853 fly.
The app has been designed to give you exclusive information on the Rolls-Royce Spitfire in an interactive way, featuring animated visuals to unveil the 2015 display, a 360-degree cockpit tour, as well as the latest technology from Rolls-Royce plc.
We wanted to create an app that keeps PS853’s supporters up to date with her display calendar and to give you a behind the scenes look at our team throughout the 2015 season. The Interactive Spitfire section allows you to unlock different areas of the aircraft, learn about what lies underneath her body, and includes a working model of her famous Griffon engine.
There will be new content and features added to the app in the coming weeks and months, including an opportunity for you to test your knowledge of aviation and the Spitfire against our pilots (who you can read more about in The Team page).
Thank you for your continued support, I hope you enjoy the app and our 2015 display.
Head of Corporate Heritage
