Preservation Profile
Another superb picture by RICHARD PAVER of Supermarine Spitfire LF.XVIE TD248/G-OXVI. Recently completed for collector Eddie Coventry, chairman of BAC Windows, TD248 is painted in a stunning and very individual colour scheme originally worn by a 41 Sqn Spitfire Mk 21 in 1947. It is seen here being flown by Flt Lt Charlie Brown on April 3, 1993 against the majestic background of Audley End House in Essex, which is situated just a few fields away from Historic Flying's strip where the Spitfire was restored.
