The Spitfires were just two of the aircraft taking part in the Windermere Air Show and were using Blackpool Airport as a base for take offs, landings and refuelling.
A member of the Lancashire Constabulary, who was passing through the airport, captured the Spitfire taxiing past a Jet2.com 737 in a stark contrast of old and new aviation technology.
Unfortunately Spitfires rarely fly nowadays, save for the purpose of annual air shows, but you can take advantage of fantastically low fares from Blackpool with Jet2.com.
