Spitfire ride won by great grandad Jim Sudds, 74, from Sheppey

Dec 2021

A great-grandfather is on cloud nine after scooping a £5,000 ride in a Second World War Spitfire.

Jim Sudds, 74, was at home on the Isle of Sheppey when presenter Christian Williams, who hosts a show on competition website BOTB, called to tell him he had bagged a Spitfire Experience to fly in one of the last remaining aircraft.

A stunned Mr Sudds replied: “Oh, that’s fantastic. I used to build plastic model kits of planes when I was a nipper and living in London. We’d put bangers in the cockpits and throw them off the balcony!”

He paid 35p to enter the luxury lifestyle competition and correctly identified Porsche as being the one car in a line-up not made in Britain.

He said: “Having worked in the motor trade from the age of 15 as a mechanic, driver, workshop manager and fleet manager until I retired I should have got it right!”

The flight of a lifetime offered to take him soaring above the white cliffs of Dover to relive history aboard one of the only 53 Spitfire air-worthy models left in the world.

But the grandfather of six and great grandfather of three has since decided to take the cash instead.

He admitted: “On reflection, I thought doing loop the loops and barrel rolls at my age might not be such a good thing. You can fall out of those aircraft, you know. With Christmas coming up and heating bills rising I have decided to take the money. It will come in very handy. We're going to treat ourselves to a new carpet.”

Mr Sudds lives in Prince Charles Avenue, Minster, with his second wife Jan. She has four children, six grandchildren and one great grandchild.

Jim said: “She spotted the competition and suggested I enter because she knew I'd always wanted to fly in a Spitfire. So I bought £7 of tickets but I never thought I'd be picked. It's the first time I've ever won anything!”

TESTIMONIAL

Lovely people, great experience dealing with them. Was a real surprise when I won the Spitfire Flight experience, but due to my age I took the cash alternative. The money was in my bank the next day and will make a great difference to us. Can now afford a much needed holiday! Thank you so much BOTB.
