A World War II Spitfire aircraft is up for sale for £4.5m.
Spitfire, which brought down a Nazi plane in World War II, starred in the world of cinema, appearing in films such as The Longest Day and Battle of Britain
The plane, which is offered for sale on Cloud Nine, remained in a Texas hangar for forty years and was later shipped to Australia, before returning recently to Britain.
Richard Grace, of the Aircraft Sales Company, said: “This is the most original Spitfire flying in the world. Only the wing spars have been replaced. It shot down a Focke-Wulf-190 in the Second World War and is a very early Mark IX which is very rare. I have flown it and it is lovely to fly.”
