Built in 1945, PS853 was one of the last Spitfires in Royal Air Force service and became a founder member of the RAF Historic Aircraft Flight, now the BBMF, in 1957. Sold by the BBMF in June 1994 to fund restoration of Hurricane LF363, it was bought by Rolls Royce Corporate Heritage Department in 1996, with whom it remains, kept at Filton. Of 37 Spitfires on the British civil register, this is the only PRXIX. It is shown participating in the 2007 Kemble Air Day. (400D, anti-shake Sigma 80-400 & tripod)
