Caption
Originally a clipped wing variant, restored to flying condition for the film 'The Battle of Britain'. It is the only Spitfire in the world still flying with an original de Havilland three blade propeller. Over the winter of 2000/2001 AR501 was repainted and elliptical wingtips were refitted, returning the aircraft to the condition in which it was delivered to 310 Squadron.

As a Czech I am really proud to see this airplane. Our pilots who fought in Britain are not forgotten there.
Thanks for the shot.
