RAF veteran fulfills dream of flying in a Spitfire

An RAF veteran has been taken on a flight in a Spitfire as a thank you for caring for his wife. John Allinson, from Reading, Berkshire, was given the chance to fly in the fighter plane after his granddaughter contacted the Red Letter Days experience gift company. The 85-year-old, who served in the military police for five years from the age of 17 and who reached the rank of corporal, took his flight from Solent Airport in Lee-on-the-Solent, Hampshire.
