The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight’s Supermarine Spitfire Mk XVI TE311 flew again for the first time in 58 years on October 29. It took twelve years for the BBMF team to restore this aircraft to airworthiness.
Although TE311 is not itself a combat veteran, it carries the colours of the aircraft flown by Squadron Leader Tony Reeves, CO of No 74 Squadron from MArch to May 1945.
