Jan 11, 2011 – Ongoing Test Flights Yield Much Success

Just minor squawks and adjustments from the Jan 11 test flight.

June 5, 2010 – Prop and Plane are now one.

Now that is what makes this plane so beautiful, the 5 bladed propellor. It has been a long haul since the engine was delivered, but the crew has been very careful to take the time needed to do it right and indeed they have. Well the wait will soon be over and those 5 blades will be a blur when we soon once again see the Spitfire take to the air.
