Craig Morris, 56, of North Walsham, won the Ultimate Spitfire Experience in BOTB’s online lifestyle competition.

The prize is worth over £5,000 and Mr Morris said: “This is the ultimate dream.”

Since being founded by William Hindmarch, BOTB has given away over £25m worth of prizes.

Mr Morris, who has been entering the draw for six years, said: “The dream for any pilot is to go up in a Spitfire and that’s why I started entering the competition.

“I’ve flown in other planes before, like the Tiger Moth, but never a Spitfire. It’s going to be amazing to actually go up in one.

“Just to be in one with the engines running will be truly emotional.”

He said he was “a Spitfire fan” and his office is filled with memorabilia including several models and posters.
