Spitﬁre, Hurricane, Lancaster - arguably the three most famous planes in the history of powered ﬂight.
And two high ﬂying apprentices will have the privilege of working on them after learning their skills in Doncaster.
Charlie Easey, aged 22, left, and Neil Rutledge, 24, pictured with squadron leader Dun Mason, have started a three-month placement with the RAF’s Battle of Britain Memorial Flight. Their job will be to keep the planes that helped win the Second World War ﬂying.
The posting comes after both completed training on the BAE Systems aircraft maintenance and support programme.
Neil trained at the company’s RJ Mitchell Academy at Doncaster Airport.
