Silver Spitfire - The Longest Flight

Recommended Posts

Starting from UK, the Silver Spitfire G-IRTY has progressed to Japan on her around the world flight. 76 years old and still going strong!

Arrived from Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, Russia to New Chitose, Japan on late Saturday afternoon, September 21.

Continuing the journey this morning. Thumbs up and ready to go!

Cool shots! It's really great you were there to see that. I assume it's traveling with a pretty stout support crew following along? It'd be a bear to break down somewhere w/out any Spitfire parts for months.

Thank you! Yes, they have a support crew with a Pilatus PC-12 traveling alongside. They still have a long way to go, hope they will make it through without major issues.
