Spitfire ZK-NLJ/TB252 Flies at Ardmore

Just in time to be a wonderful Christmas present for some lucky person, Spitfire LF Mk XVI ZK-NLJ/TB252 test flew from Ardmore on 18/12/20 flown by John Lamont:

This Spitfire arrived at Avspecs way back in 2002 when it was owned by Tony Banta of Livermore CA.  On 27/3/20 it was registered to Avspecs Ltd and I understand that it will be heading off to the aforesaid lucky overseas owner.

Airborne again for the first time in nearly 70 years!
