AERO LEGENDS TO RESTORE ANOTHER ICONIC SPITFIRE!

We are delighted to announce that Spitfire MJ444 will be joining the Aero Legends stable and that you too can get behind the scenes of the restoration. Spitfire MJ444 will be restored to a two-seat dual control trainer configuration over 26 months.

Following an assessment of our options, we’re delighted to once again be working with the market leaders in warbird (specifically Spitfire) restoration, The Aircraft Restoration Company who will oversee the restoration to flight and the following test flight programme.

Airframe Assemblies will be rebuilding a range of key components for the restoration and will be instrumental in Spitfire MJ444’s return to flight. Our in house engineering division, Vintage Aero will be providing their assistance to rebuild a number of key components.
