Outstanding! 5*****

Interesting that this Spitfire was ID'd as an Airbus. Great photo! Interesting angle for the photo. Absolutely worth 5 stars.

Finnish? Israeli? Can't make out insignia.Strong shot.

Japanese Airbus A-321? I don't think so! But what a great study of a refurbished Spitfire! Loved the panned effect with the blurred background. It gives the photo real movement! This must be a Mk.XVIIIe given the 5-blade prop and bubble canopy. Good for close to 450 mph at 24,000 ft and a ceiling of 43,000 ft! Incredible! That's BizJet territory!

Aren't those New Zealand markings?

John mcGeoghan - This roundel insignia was used by the Royal Air Force in the SEAC (South East Asia Command) and CBI (China-Burma-India) theatre during the WWII period from 1942 to 1946.

The red colour center was removed and replaced with light blue to avoid confusion with the Japanese hinomaru. This blue was obtained with a mix of the normal roundel blue colour and white colour paints.

Aircraft in the CBI theatre commonly used roundels and fin flashes of approximately half the normal size.

Cliff thank you Can I remember Burma giving permission for excavations to be made trying to locate crates of pre assembled Spitfires a few years ago? Were any found.?

John mcGeoghan - You're welcome and my thanks to You. I seem to recall of those buried Spitfires, but don't remember ever reading exactly if any were successfully located and unearthed.
