The Spitfire is perhaps the most mythical aircraft of all. Norwegian Flying Aces is finally opening the doors to a project 10 years in the making – to revisit history from inside the legendary aircraft in Telemarks breathtaking nature. This unique Spitfire was flown in the war by Norwegian war hero Lt. Rolf T Tradin.
The story of one of the most successful norwegian air pilots in WWII is what sets the tone for your once in a lifetime experience over the lakes and mountains of Notodden, Telemark – an area in which has a legacy from WWII of its own.
We are offering flights in Notodden with this Spitfire, only rebuilt as a two seater. The total experience is 30 minutes – with minimum 20 minutes airborne. Before your flight you will be briefed on the safety equipment and the aircraft, and have to sign a waver where you confirm that you understand the risks of flying an aircraft from WWII.
After takeoff you will look out over the famous elliptical Spitfire-wings at incredible scenery in Telemark as the mighty Rolls-Royce Merlin v12 engine roars through the air. If you want to, you can take the stick and fly this historic aircraft yourself for a brief period. Finally we will do the famous victory roll with the Spitfire and make your experience complete. The whole trip will be filmed with two action cameras and footage will be made available to you after landing.
