Despite loving the Spitfire since childhood, I’ve never heard that before. They look really weird!
Supermarine 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.
I remember seeing the Spitfire at the airport back in 2013 but didn’t notice the stubby wings at the time.
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.

Dry and a bit of sun so top down and head out for a drive.

Snow, hail and rain meant it had to go back up for about 15 minutes but overall it was great.

As I was out taking the pictures an unmarked 5 series was pulling a wee Suzuki estate of some description. Glad I decided to take some pictures.

It was cleaner yesterday after I washed it.
Space grey is very forgiving in the sun.
Hides the dirt well.
Roads were still damp in places, but nice to get the roof down in the sun ☀️

I definitely want silver mirrors for my black E89.....nice to see these cars being used and enjoyed...I am suffering with a long term back injury at the moment and the chances of me being able to even get in and out of my car for the next month or so seem a long way off☹️

Ah - The magnificent Spitfire(s). Never was a better mechanical bird. A thing to be proud of for sure. There is a flying museum close by. The drag out all the WWII birds once a year for a wonderful show. All the planes roaring by in one low pass after another from Allies and Axis nations. Love the big radial engines :thumbsup:
