It does spit fire.

Morning all! Can't believe it's Friday once again. This morning's image shows a very happy Parky as he dismounts from Spitfire Mk.LF.IXe following a test flight in November 2013. Stephen.

Supermarine Spitfires

Its almost 75 years since the day Bahrain donated a Spitfire to the British Government and the RAF to support the war effort and Britain in its hour of need. The aircraft (W3632), proudly flew with the "Bahrain" insignia painted on its fuselage. However, the aircraft never graced the skies over the country after which it was named. At this weekend's Bahrain International Air Show, Supermarine Spitfire "W3632" will get the chance to roll back the years and demonstrate the iconic sound and lines of this most famous of fighter aircraft. Sadly, the original W3632 is no longer with us but its part is being played by a similar aircraft of 1943 vintage. Belonging to the Aircraft Restoration Company of Duxford in the County of Essex, this two-seater version of the legendary Spitfire is flown by the vastly experienced war birds pilot John Romain and demonstrates the tangible link of friendship between the United Kingdom and Bahrain; a friendship that stretches back over many, many years.
