I've just witnessed a short display by a clipped wing Spitfire AD-V over Boscombe Down! :D Did anybody else see it?

Saw it fly over us near Henlow about 19:00 heading South West. Guess on its way to Boscombe!

Ummm... Codes 'AD-V'? Could it have been the recently restored MK.V 'Mable' EE602 'DV-V', which made it's first flight a few weeks ago, but now fitted with clipped wings? Cheers Paul

Hi. Yes I did, it arrived from the north over Bulford at 20.00hrs and did about 3 or 4 flypasts of Boscombe Down airfield. Don't know what the event was, probably an officers mess dinner night. It then departed to the north in the Netheravon direction.
