Residents at HC-One’s Melbury Court care home in Durham made a short trip to the homes car park to salute the NHS Spitfire that flew across the North East on September 22nd.
Melbury Court Residents, accompanied by Colleagues, made a short trip to the homes car park to watch, wave and salute the NHS Spitfire that flew across the North East, thanking frontline workers for all the work they have done over the past six months.
At 1.53pm the sound of the Spitfire could be heard, and Residents were overcome with emotion as the Spitfire flew overhead. It did a full loop of the home and car park before heading on to the hospital.
Donald Macro, A Resident at Melbury Court, has a personal interest in Spitfires as he did maintenance work on them during the war. Donald sat with tears in his eyes and saluted the Spitfire as it came overhead, “It was great to get out and watch the flyover, it was great to see,” beamed Donald.
Melbury Court Home Manager, Hazel Southern said: “I am so happy that the Spitfire did a full loop over Melbury first. Our Residents thoroughly enjoyed the experience.”
