To raise money for Help the Heroes, and the RAF Benevolent Fund, Ford dealership Stoneacre York drove a Ford Transit ECOnetic round Battle of Britain sites ending up at Southampton on one tank of fuel.
"Ford's Southampton Transit plant is the same factory that built the Spitfire," said Nigel Little, project leader, Stoneacre. "With this being the 70th anniversary of the Battle of Britain and the 45th birthday of the Transit, it seemed the perfect time to commemorate those events and also to raise some cash for worthy causes."
The two day drive saw the Transit ECOnetic visit RAF bases and sites around Britain starting at the Yorkshire Air Museum at the old bomber station of Elvington and ending the run at the Eastleigh Ford Transit plant, near the old Eastleigh Airport, from which the Spitfire made its maiden flight.
