CLASSY: Prince Harry gives up Battle of Britain flypast Spitfire seat for last surviving RAF veteran

As Prince Harry sports rugged beard as he inspects planes taking part in 75th anniversary flypast, he gives up aircraft place for veteran Tom Neil.

He gave up his seat to ensure veteran Tom 'Ginger' Neil and two wounded servicemen could still take part in the biggest gathering of Battle of Britain aircraft since the Second World War.

Around 40 Spitfires, Hurricanes and Bristol Blenheim bombers are flying in formation from Goodwood Aerodrome in West Sussex before dispersing across wartime airfields over the South of England.

The Prince was due to have a seat in one of four two-seater Spitfires taking part in the flypast. But when one of the vintage aircraft developed mechanical problems, he decided to step aside to ensure the event's special guests would still get to fly.
