Rare WWII Spitfire Fetches Millions – watch the aircraft in flight
#spitfire #WWII #RAF
A rare RAF Spitfire found buried in sand on the French coast has sold for over £3m, close to $5m and over 4million Euro. It was brought back to ‘flight’ and auctioned by Christie’s in London 9 July, 2015. The unique aircraft was once flown by a Great Escape veteran and fetched millions of pounds for charity after it went under the hammer. It has been restored to its original flying power by a team at RAF Duxford, Cambridgeshire, and is one of only two left in the world. Proceeds will go to the RAF Benevolent Fund and Oxford University’s Wildlife Conservation Research Unit.
