The latest support of IWC Schaffhausen towards Silver Spitfire
According to a latest press information it has been reported that IWC Schaffhausen is to lend support to the “Silver Spitfire – The Longest Flight” expedition and will remain its main sponsor. The reports says that the coming summer, a carefully restored Spitfire boasting a unique silver-chrome finish will take off from London to embark on a round-the-world flight.
The aircraft, built in 1943, will cover more than 43,000 kilometres over several months, visiting some 30 countries on its way. The circumnavigation honours the quintessential design and unparalleled engineering of the iconic British plane. The expedition is the brainchild of Steve Boultbee-Brooks and Matt Jones, founders of the Boultbee Flight Academy, based on the Goodwood Estate in the south of England. IWC is establishing a long-term partnership with the first official Spitfire flying academy.
