Does anyone know which Spitfire this was? I caught sight of it but it was to far away to make identification possible

Thanks for that I did wonder if it may have been Peter Teichman but I did not hear him on North Weald radio either leaving or on the return flight, I did hear a light aircraft out of Elstree say early on (11AM) he was surveying the site for the display

That was him in his Bonanza on his way to NW from Elstree. The Spitfire took off for a short practice to the east and was working Stapleford Radio. A second display yesterday afternoon too.
