After more than a decade's worth of restoration at a cost of around £800,000, one of the last of the Spitfires has taken to the skies over Lincolnshire for its first flight in almost 60 years.
As from next year, the restored Spitfire will be used in displays as part of the RAF's Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.
