RAF 100

Miles Magister

The Miles M.14 Magister is a two seat basic trainer originally built for the RAF and Fleet Air Arm. As a low wing trainer, it provided a good introduction to students destined for the new Spitfire and Hurricane. 

First flown in 1937, over 700 were in service with the RAF by the start of the Second World War. Many Magisters passed into civilian hands after the war and flew with private owners and flying clubs around the world. 

The Magister attending the 2018 Air Tattoo flew with the RAF as T9738; colours that it flies with again today.  

“It was an epic spectacle, as magical as anything you've ever seen in the West End, and as loud as anything you've ever heard at Knebworth.”

Jeremy Clarkson, Television Presenter

“All the thrills, excitement and noise of a Grand Prix, but in the air!”

Jenson Button, Formula 1 Racing Driver

“This is the best airshow!”

Buzz Aldrin, Apollo 11 Astronaut
