Rare Two-Seater Spitfire

Recommended Posts

This actual aircraft was delivered ex-factory to the Irish Air Corps.

 

After restoration to flying condition it is now painted in totally bogus RAF colours. The aircraft never served with the RAF.

 

Photo taken by me at Duxford.

... and here it is in the hanger at Duxford. With apologies for hijacking your post Vivion.

No apology needed!

Very nice photo. (Perhaps we were at Duxford on the same day).

I was fortunate enough to join a group visit to the restoration company hanger. They were working on several aircraft and restoring a couple of Spitfires for the forces. We weren't allowed to photograph those but were lucky that the M.D. decided to give us a private flying demonstration of one of their own Spits. I'll add some shots in a separate post.


Still trying.
