I remember seeing the Spitfire at the airport back in 2013 but didn’t notice the stubby wings at the time.enzed4 wrote: ↑Fri Jan 03, 2020 10:14 pmSupermarine Spitfire LF Mk.XVIE
A bit of history of the actual aircraft is here: https://www.airforcemuseum.co.nz/aircra ... f-mk-xvie/
The fibreglass replica used to stand outside the Brevet Club on the approach to Christchurch airport. The Brevet Club was demolished and the Spitfire relocated to Spitfire Square, a shopping complex close to the airport.
It’s a shame it’s been moved, its most fitting home is at an airfield. I used to love driving passed RAF Northolt in London as a kid just so I could look at the Spitfire at the gates.
