    Yay, more Spitfires!! My grandad was involved with building them, especially the propellors, so they're a bit of personal history to me. There's some model ones near where I live, so I'll be out later in the week to try and get them!

    Love those shots! I don't think I've ever seen a blue spitfire before. Absolutely beautiful.

    im up for that !!

    The light blue ones are Photo Reconnaissance planes hence the sky like colour.

    The dark blue one with U2 on the side was painted up for the "Merlins over Malta" show in Malta, they flew a spitfire and a hurricane from Duxford to malta for the show which I think was the first time a spitfire had been to Malta since WWII

    i must agree that the old warbirds have more character than the modern jets and SOUND better
