MJ271 RTB...

A truly monumental achievement in aviation 'milestones' and completed in technology from the 30/40's. 

After 123 days/27,000 miles/22 countries and 4 continents, Spitfire MJ271 aka "The Silver Spitfire" has come home.

Sometimes great designs defy the march of time....

Almost home...

Almost 5 months after it's departure on "The Longest Flight", G-IRTY/MJ271 is due to return to the UK and Goodwood next week, weather/serviceability permitting, after successfully flying around the world.

Currently stopped in Friedrichshafen, very close to IWC HQ in Schaffhausen.
