Vintage Fighter Restorations have quite a history in the restoration of the legendary Supermarine Spitfire, having restored the first flying “Warbird” Spitfire in the country, the “Pay’s Spitfire” Mk VIII VH-HET. This Spitfire was restored by the late Col Pay and is now operated by Temora Aviation Museum (TAM).
Vintage Fighter Restorations currently have two Mk IX Spitfires under restoration, LF.IXb, MH415 and Spitfire F.Mk.IX MH603.
