Comments:
One of the small number of extant two-seat Spitfires - all of which I think began life as single-seaters.
By the way, there used to be an East Mainland parish called St Andrews in which the airport was situated. Has it been abolished?

[I took an executive decision and split it into Tankerness and Toab to match local sensitivities - Steven]

Thought as much Steven, but as a West Mainlander I wouldn't know where the boundaries of those areas lie exactly.
