Just three hours into its forty hour test flying program the Supermarine Aircraft Spitfire Mk26B Spitfire Replica ZK-MEB (c/n 72) was noted at Rangiora on 27-01-18.
It was first registered to Ivan Campbell of Loburn Abbey on 28-11-2016.
Above we see Ivan getting organised prior to start.
The small print forward of the cockpit says ' Into the Blue'.
Up and into the blue.
Lovely sound there Ivan.
