The Spitfire has left the museum to begin an incredible new adventure. It will be restored to its former glory and return to Stoke-on-Trent as the star of a new display. The aircraft will be unveiled in its new home in 2021.
It’s a pretty exciting time for the City’s Spitfire, which will be returning 2021 in a brand new home. Explore this page to get the latest updates on the project.
Spitfire RW388 was donated to the City of Stoke-on-Trent in 1972. This honours Reginald J. Mitchell, the designer of the Spitfire, who was born and educated in North Staffordshire before becoming one of the greatest aeronautical engineers of his generation.
