description
Spitfire JG891/G-LFVC was built as a Mk Vc (T) at Castle Bromwich and delivered to 39MU, RAF Colerne on January 2nd 1943. A flapless landing, downwind on 12th January 1944 resulted in the aircraft flipping over and being written off, with the pilot suffering only minor injuries.  After spares recovery the hulk was pushed into undergrowth along with two other Spitfires.  Discovered in 1973, the Spitfire was removed and then passed through a number of owners before being acquired by Karel Bos and moved to his company Historic Flying in March 1999.  Restoration was undertaken at Duxford from 2003.  It has recently been repainted in the authentic colours of a Spitfire MkVc(T) of 249 Sqn operating from Ta Qali airfield, Malta in 1943.
