    Poor thing really needs to be finished! It was absolutely complete and original when we had it at HFL. Cant believe that was more than half my lifetime ago!

    Was this the Bentley Priory one? I was there in 1985 but never got to walk over to the Spit and Hurri

    Trolley Aux,

    In 1985 that would have been SL574. Replacement TB252 arrived in the spring of 1986.

    Interesting that its described as one of the most original Spitfires surviving - with new spars -skins and rivets.

    Makes some of the others slightly less original

    It'd be nice to know if her "wartime" supplied rearview mirror survived all this time too.

    I hope the next owner completes the restoration in NZ, purely so I can see it fly after reading about its import and waiting patiently. I was hoping her completion would allow a four-ship of Spitfires at a Kiwi airshow!

    It will be interesting to see how the project progresses from here.
