The Moffat Spitfire

Our holiday base for this week is Moffat in the Scottish borders, weather permitting I have a few locations I hope to fly but I thought I would share this flight from today straight away.
In his front garden retired GP Hamish Macleod has a full size replica of a world war II Spitfire,
an information plaque provides a history of the original aircraft PT462 and a collection box is provided with donations going to the RAF benevolent fund. The aircraft has been left to the people of Moffat and when the time comes it will be moved to the gardens of nearby Dowding house RAF retirement housing.
