Spitfires lines up on the runway in Southampton.
A great gift for a plane lover.
On 5 March 1936 the first test flight of the Supermarine Spitfire took place at the airport, an event commemorated in 2004 with the erection of a near-full size sculpture of K5054, the prototype Spitfire at the road entrance.
On 5 March 2006 at 16:30 GMT, five restored Spitfires took off from Southampton Airport to commemorate the seventieth anniversary of the first flight of the Spitfire at the precise same time as the test flights in 1936.
