This capture of Mk VIII Spitfire was taken at Albion Park Air Show NSW Australia 27th Feb 2011.
This aircraft was the last Spitfire acquired by the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF). It was built by Supermarine in England in 1944, test flown and then shipped to Australia. The Air Force took delivery of the aircraft in April 1945. With World War II drawing to a close, the aircraft was not required on active service and was placed into storage.
