A Spitfire at Glasgow Prestwick Airport
A Spitfire at Glasgow Prestwick Airport
This classic WW2 fighter plane was part of a Battle of Britain Memorial Flight which was due to display at the Scottish Airshow at Ayr Low Green on Saturday 6th September 2014. However, bad weather at RAF Coningsby prevented the two Spitfires and Lancasters from taking off, so they did a fly past at Prestwick on the Sunday before heading off to the Portrush Airshow in Northern Ireland and landed at Prestwick on the return from Portrush.
