Not another Spitfire!

'fraid so. In the coming weeks we will take you close up through another Spitfire coming apart, this time it is the Mk.XIV. The boys have already started to de-cowl and remove the propeller. Monday will see a teach in for those that have never seen a propeller being dismantled for storage. By now removing wings is old hat so hopefully by the end of the week they will be on their stands. With luck we will have a bunch of volunteers in on Sunday to give us a hand.

No camera man today so you will have to make do with a blast from the past when the very same airframe was being worked on in sleepy Sleaford in Lincolnshire.
