Supermarine Spitfire Mk.IX, MJ755, was delivered to RAF No. 43 Squadron in August 1944. In 1947 approximately 120 Spitfires; including MJ755, were transferred to the Hellenic Air Force equipping 3 Squadrons. By 1954 all Spitfires were retired from service and eventually scrapped except for MJ755 that was stored and eventually became the gate guard at Tatoi AB and then moved to the Hellenic Air Force Museum. It was decided to make the plane airworthy so in 2018 it was shipped to Biggin Hill for a total restoration.Opening canopy

The Supermarine Spitfire is a British single-seat fighter aircraft used by the Royal Air Force and many other Allied countries during World War II and into the 1950s as a front line fighter and in secondary roles. The Spitfire was first flown on March 5, 1936 and entered service with the RAF in August 1938. It served in several roles, including; interceptor, photo-reconnaissance, fighter bomber, carrier-based fighter and trainer. The Spitfire was built in many variants, using several wing configurations. It was produced in greater numbers than any other British aircraft and was the only British fighter in continuous production throughout the war. When production ended in February 1948, a total of 20,351 Spitfires of all variants had been built.
