A Spitfire plane dedicated to NHS heroes is set to fly over Scotland tomorrow.

The NHS—marked world war craft will soar over hospitals across the country as part of a thank you message to those working on the frontline during the coronavirus pandemic.

And Scots are being given the opportunity to nominate the names of their loved ones to be handwritten on the unique plane.

To nominate a name, visit the plane's JustGiving page.

The jet is set to take off from Cumbernauld Airport at around 10am tomorrow, before heading over Edinburgh ten minutes later.

John Romain, Founder & Managing Director of Aircraft Restoration Company, said:  “The response to our initial flight over the last 8pm #clapforourcarers Thursday was incredibly humbling, with hundreds of people from the local community sharing how wonderful it was to not only see the Spitfire, but also to read the message emblazoned across its wings. 

“After such positive response we decided to leave the message painted on the Spitfire for the rest of the flying season,  this is where the idea to hand write the names of the nation’s loved ones onto the aircraft to raise money for the NHS Charities Together began.”
