Photo Comment

This aircraft was the first production Griffon powered Spitfire. It is seen here in the colours of the Indian Airforce with whom it served. It was acquired by the Commemorative Airforce in 2004 from the Museum of Flight at Santa Monica Ca and is currently grounded for an engine rebuild. Note also the B25 Mitchell in the background which is being refurbished in this cluttered hangar.
