'wild flight' is the definition.
'stampede' can be an answer for 'flight' (I've seen this before). I'm not sure about the 'wild' bit.

'impressed with spitfire's last' is the wordplay.
'impressed' becomes 'stamped' (stamping is a kind of impressing).

(Other definitions for stampede that I've seen before include "Wild headlong rush" , "Panicked rush (of cattle)" , "Wild run of frightened cattle" , "herd scatter wildly" , "Deems apt to have flight of cattle" .)
