Aviation Photo #1352635 Supermarine 509 Spitfire T9C - Untitled

On the way back from Lelystad to Antwerp an unintentional gear retraction occurred on the taxi lane damaging one of the most beautiful and rare Spit's. A very sad sight although a quick first inspection showed not to much damage apart from a expensive prop.
