Originally with the Royal Air Force as MK959, this Spitfire was transferred to the Royal Netherlands Air Force in 1946. After some work as an airfield decoy from the mid - 50s, the fighter was displayed on a pole at Deelen Air Base. In 1993 it was replaced with a fiberglass replica and the aircraft sold to the USA. It was slowly restored to flight during 1995 - 2004.
