About

The Hangar

The Heritage Hangar was founded in early 2011 to house the activities of The Spitfire Company (Biggin Hill) Limited, with the purpose of restoring a single Spitfire. From this it has grown to the point where it has now a whole squadron’s worth and completed its sixth airworthy example. At any one time, the hangar is a hive of activity with several ongoing restorations. In the past up close access to Spitfires has been available to only a lucky few, but now you can take a tour round the facility and see at first hand what goes into putting a Spitfire back in the air, how they are maintained and what is involved in their day to day running.

Airworthy

Spitfires & Hurricane

As well as restorations, the hangar also contains Spitfires that are already airworthy, plus a Hurricane, Harvard and Piper Cub. Currently we also have a visiting Messerschmitt 109e staying with us. There is no greater concentration of Spitfire activity anywhere else in the world, and its all located at the historic Biggin Hill airfield, a key sector station in the Battle of Britain.
