The World War One Fovant Badges View all products

Fovant Valley just west of Salisbury, at the birthplace of military flying, was a vast training camp in the First World War. Countless thousands of young men trained there before travelling to France to serve at the front. Many did not return. But some left their mark in the sadly evocative Fovant Badges that they carved into the chalky hillside above Fovant. There they remain. What better way to see these fine, proud memorials than from the open cockpit of a 1930s vintage Tiger Moth?

The GoFly Fovant Badges experience take you up in a 1930s vintage Tiger Moth from the historic airfield of Old Sarum to fly down the Fovant valley and see the Fovant Badges from the air. You’ll never look at them from the ground again in the same way. The experience is unforgettable and takes around twenty minutes.

The package also includes a free entry to the famous Boscombe Down Aircraft Collection for the pilot! While waiting to fly you can browse the unique collection of military aircraft there, many of which you can climb into. It includes a replica BE2C from WW1, a de Havilland Chipmunk and a large collection of Cold War jets including the Hunter and the Lightning.

Span eighty years of military flying in one day. Fly in a 1930s biplane and then climb into a supersonic jet fighter!
