    Another Spitfire EN224 thread

    News on this bird has been quiet, other than it appears to be Air Leasing's top priority project on their website.

    This is the only vaguely recent photo I could find (from 2016 at Sywell aerodrome).

    There was a great article on Richard Grace/Air Leasing and Graham Peacock/Anglia Aircraft Restorations in a recent issue of "Warbird Digest". In the article, it states that EN224 (G-FXII) is expected to fly this year, 2019, and another of the two Buchons they're currently restoring is expected to fly sometime soon/before EN224 is completed.

      Its going to be good to see this one fly! Another new mark and always good to hear the Griffin roar!
      interesting to hear that one of the buchons is actually going to be in a Spanish scheme too
