A SPECIALLY decorated World War Two Spitfire will be soaring through the skies of Bradford tomorrow morning to say thank you to the NHS staff who have worked tirelessly throughout the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Thank U NHS Spitfire, a blue photo-reconnaissance plane is touring the nation's hospitals raising money for NHS Charities Together.

People have the opportunity to nominate a deserving loved one to have their name handwritten onto the side of the iconic jet who have done small acts of kindness throughout the Covid-19 lockdown; from a kind neighbour to a community hero or NHS staff working long hours to treat the ill.

It's hoped that seeing the Spitfire jetting past Bradford Royal Infirmary tomorrow will lift people's spirits while thanking hospitals and their staff for their hard work.

The Spitfire will be flying over Bradford Royal Infirmary tomorrow, Wednesday, September 16, at 10.44am.

It will be travelling west across the city on its way from St Mary's Hospital in Leeds at 10.41am, having passed Pinderfields in Wakefield at 10.38am after leaving Duxford Airfield at 10am.

After passing BRI it will go onto Harrogate, York, Northallerton and Darlington before landing in Teesside.
