SPITFIRE MK VB REPLICA

On 3rd August 2012, we reported that an inspection of our replica Spitfire Mk VB BL924 had revealed age-related structural problems and that an assessment of the necessary restoration work was under way.  This examination indicated damage beyond the Museum’s ability to repair.

At about the same time, it was discovered that the Spitfire Society was seeking a Spitfire replica for mobile display purposes and possessed the required facilities and expertise fully to restore BL924.   Therefore, and in view of the Society’s undertaking to retain her existing livery as a memorial to Danish pilot Axel Svendsen of No 234 Squadron who was shot down and killed whilst flying Spitfire BL924 from RAF Tangmere in 1942, a change of ownership was agreed by the Museum and she was collected by the Society on 25th April.
