Own Your Own Spitfire
Got a couple of extra million? You can own your own AIRWORHTY RAF Mk I Vickers Supermarine Spitfire. On July 9, 2015 Christies will auction off this aircraft which is 1 of 2 operational Spitfire aircraft in the world. This Spitfire has fascinating history. It was piloted by Pete Cazenove during the evacuation of Dunkirk. He was shot down on 5/24/40 and captured near Calais. He was assigned to Stulag Luft III and was part of the Great Escape in 1944 (one of our favorite movies.) While he did not escape he did survive. It has taken 5 years to restore the Spitfire and all proceeds are being donated to conservation efforts in the UK.

About Tailwinds
Hi! Im Nancy and this is a photo of me from the 1992 Around the World Air Race. Im holding what is left of a spinner from the Tailwinds World Flyer, a Piper PA-39 Twin Comanche. The rest of the spinner had crashed into the windshield leaving a 5 inch gaping hole as we were racing over southern France approaching Cannes. We had just flown over 12 hours from Nuuk, Greenland and were racing for first place. The sun had risen and fortunately I had put on my sunglasses so there was no eye damage as the glass flew into the cockpit and into my face. Such are the mishaps and adventures of cross country air racing. And adventure is one of the reasons why I love aviation!
Tailwinds began as a catalog operation in 1986 on the kitchen table of one of our founders, Marion Jayne. Marion was my mother, personal CFI, and pilot extraordinaire! She was the 12th woman in the United States to earn her ATP rating, and was honored as one of the top 100 aviators of the century at Kitty Hawk in 2003. We began Tailwinds because we wanted to offer products that represented the love of aviation and the celebration of flight. We’ve had tremendous growth since we published our first catalog, but our founding principles remain the same. Our goal is to provide a pleasant shopping experience featuring only quality products and top-notch customer service.
