Iconic RAF Spitfire
From the BBC
An RAF World War Two Spitfire painstakingly restored over five years, has sold for £3.1m at auction.
The airworthy fighter, based at Imperial War Museum Duxford, is one of only two left in the world to have been restored to its original specification. The aircraft was shot down over Calais in 1940 and discovered when its wreckage was exposed by the tide.
