From Stormbringer, via Theo, via Chuckles:
That’s wonderful, that’s really nice to hear.

This story was in the Telegraph and is indeed a wonderful find, although the number quoted was less at sixty, they are a later version of the Spitfire with the Griffon engine not the Merlin and are rarer.
Most will be coming back to the UK but a few will remain behind and go on display, it’s incredible what still turns up after all these years.
At last, an OMG!! moment.
I have lunch every tuesday with a selct group of friends, amongst them a 90 year old chap who was a Warrant Officer 2 Spitfire pilot. He will be delighted when I see him the day after tomorrow.
Thanks for that Chuckles.
I will pass on to my cousin Freydis Sharland, now 92, and one of the last remaining Spitfire Ladies, the ferry pilots from WW2 taking planes to the front lines. Second story down about the pilot here:
And let’s hope they can raise the funds to keep the last Vulcan flying next year.
