These are photos of an Royal Australian Air Force SupermarineSpitfire Vc, EE853,UP-O Formerly with79 Sqn. But nowowned By Langdon Badger, onstatic display in Adelaide South Australia. But is now on display at the South Australian Aviation Museum. At the time of these photos the Spitfire was sitting in Langdon's shed in his back yard along with other artifactsI took the Photos back in 2000 on Remembrance day. Unfortunately I don't havemuch in the way ofinformation to go along with the photos. All that I can say isthat the Spitfire is flyable with a believe a new Rolls Royceengine. However the owner Langdon dose not want to take the risk of flying it something along the line of a previous mistake he made with an another vintage aircraft and it was recked. If my memory serves me well.
