Help  Spitfire RW388


We are Operation Spitfire and through the restoration of the Spitfire housed in the Potteries Museum and Art Gallery, we can inspire a new generation of engineers. Through restoration, and projects such as our Spitfire simulator, you can help us create a fitting memorial to R.J. Mitchell the chief designer of the Spitfire; who was born in North Staffordshire and went to school in Stoke-on-Trent.


Operation Spitfire works as a charity under the Staffordshire Community Foundation  - Charity No: 1091628.


By making a donation you will be helping us ensure RW388 ‘The Potteries Spitfire’ is restored properly.

Planning For Our New Spitfire Gallery!!

2018 starts with a big push to get ideas in place for the interpretation of the life and achievements of R.J. Mitchell, and his Spitfire. We are working closely with the Potteries Museum & Art Gallery. We'll post more after our January meeting.

It's now been seen over 33,ooo times on YouTube. Mark will be working to create more interactive learning material in 2018, and beyond.

Operation Spitfire is a group of volunteers, committed to raising funds to help restore  Spitfire RW388 and inspire a new generation of engineers.
