No flying Spitfire while I was out today but I did stroll up to the Battle of Britain Memorial where they had a replica of the first Spitfire K5054 prototype to fly 75 years ago yesterday.

I'll admit that they are not very good my only excuse being that being in the tent the light was terrible.

Good find. Interesting choice of color for it.

That was the colour that K5054 prototype was when it flew for the first time hence why the replica is that colour. The replica lives at the RAF Museum at Tangmere Aviation Museum and was on load to the Battle of Britain Memorial for the weekend.
