We’ve all seen countless Spitfires start their engines. However, there’s nothing better than watching a Spitfire spit fire at night during a Merlin engine run! Who wouldn’t want to see that in person!?
This particular Spitfire (MJ627) was manufactured in 1943 at Castle Bromwich. It carried the Squadron code letters of “9G” and was painted with invasion stripes as seen in the video below.
But even though MJ627 has been in operation for over 70 years, with 1,500 flying hours, and a well-documented wartime history, it can still take to the skies like it was built yesterday!
Props to its owners for taking care of this historic warbird. It still looks well-maintained even today!
