Spitfire Mk XVIIIe SM845 flew for the first time since 2010 on December 17 in Duxford, with John Romain at the controls. The aircraft now carries colours of a No 28 Squadron RAF Spitfire based in Hong Kong in 1950.

The aircraft was rebuilt after the 2010 crash in Norway that cost pilot Bertil Gerhardt his life.
