A spitfire fighter plane from the Second World War flew over South Cambridgeshire and Cambridge on Thursday evening (May 28).

The spitfire set off from Duxford at 7:45pm and should fly over dozens of villages and towns on its way to Cambridge. It should be flying at 2,000 feet over South Cambridgeshire for the duration of the flight which will last around 45 minutes.

Hopefully it will pass Comberton on its way to Madingley and Cambridge…

… and it did flying eastwards over Manor Farm in Green End and the rec extension,  presumably  onto Madingley and Cambridge , but certainly not at 2000 ft !

The flight was to celebrate the NHS carers clap that has happened at 8pm every Thursday during lockdown.

However, this Thursday’s clap could be the last one according to the original organisers who want it to end at its peak rather than peter out.
