Supporting the Silver Spitfire Expedition
Blackbird is honored to be involved in Silver Spitfire – The Longest Flight. We are providing our Pilatus PC-12 as support aircraft following the Silver Spitfire on its flight around the world. Our PC-12 – manufactured in 2019 – has been rebuild with a plug door to be able to support the Silver Spitfire in flight.
Our aircraft will be carrying technicians and extra crews for the Silver Spitfire. After Months of preparation the project takes flight on the 5th of August 2019.
Most aviation professionals will have a soft spot for this project, as it involves one of the most iconic aircraft the world has ever produced. Blackbird will be monitoring the PC-12 every step of the way – from our home base in Billund, Denmark – while the aircraft and crew are showing the beauty of aviation to the audiences around the world.
