Supermarine Spitfire Photograph
1940s fighter plane seen at former RAF Westhampnett airfield
This is one of 170+ images of classic aircraft and cars that I took at the September 2004 Circuit Revival meeting at Goodwood, in Sussex, which during WW2 was an operational RAF airfield. Postwar the perimeter track was used for motor racing, and the Goodwood circuit was born.
The restored Supermarine aeroplane on this page was photographed over the 3 day Revival weekend at Goodwood, which always has a large vintage aircraft contingent supporting the historic racing. This camouflage Spitfire is a fighter plane of the type often seen at aerodromes and airfields years ago.
You'll find many more restored classic aircraft photos similar to this Supermarine Spitfire elsewhere on Classic Wheels, just have a look at the left hand menu.

An early Spitfire is covered up for the night and looks out to the sun as its sets over what was RAF Westhampnett.
