70 years ago Today - Spitfire Proto K5054 Maiden

For UK viewers - coverage of the celebratory Fly-past is at 1630 on BBC news 24, and probably elsewhere...

Capt J. Mutt Summers made the first flight of the Spitfire on the 5th of March 1936!

Apparently Alex Henshaw will be flying with them

(always fancied "doing" that blue one...easy canopy )

That would probably depend on the age of the viewer
