Spitfire Mk. IX Walkaround Tour

Pilot Dave Hadfield goes through a preflight inspection tour around the Vintage Wings of Canada / Mike Potter Collection’s Supermarine Spitfire Mk. IX, aka the “Roseland Spitfire”.

This is the same Spitfire which Dave flew to this year’s Abbotsford International Airshow.

What a stunner!

Here’s a video of its first flight after restoration in June 2017.

Here are a few more links to some interesting articles about the aircraft courtesy of Vintage Wings:
