Mk 25 Spitfire Flying Again at Stratford

After a few teething problems, Gary Marsh's Supermarine Spitfire Mk 25 ZK-RGV has been flying again from Stratford Aerodrome recently.  Nick Furmage was on hand to take these photos on 18 January:

Gary Marsh taxys his Spitfire to the fuel pump at Stratford.  I reckon that with the 75% scale, Gary's head looks more in keeping than it does with the larger bone dome that he wears for flying the aircraft.  In the above photo you can just make out that the Spitfire has been renamed Grey Nurse, which is as per the original RAAF A58-497.

Gary has also added a few more personalised touches...

And showing the lovely Spitfire lines in the air.  

Very nice indeed!
