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.
