Why buy a ticket when you can own the plane?

As part of the imminent Bonhams Goodwood Revival sale, five vintage aircraft will be offered, the least expensive of which could be had for less than a first-class flight to Goodwood (well, admittedly via Hawaii, Singapore and Monterey perhaps)…

Among the post-War (although fittingly pre-1966) quintet are three De Havillands, ranging in size from a two-seater Chipmunk to a Rapide Short-Haul Airliner. Our personal favourite, however, is the twin-boomed Vampire ­– the model was the first RAF aircraft to exceed 500mph, the first jet aircraft to land on an aircraft carrier, and the first jet aircraft to fly across the Atlantic Ocean.

You can find the entire lotlist of cars and collectables offered at the 2015 Bonhams Goodwood Revival sale in the Classic Driver Market.
