Scrapyard Spitfire fetches 1.58m pounds





A World War II Spitfire aeroplane which was found in a scrapyard has sold for £1.58m at an auction in north London.

The plane was sold at the RAF museum in Hendon after a five-year restoration in Hampshire made it airworthy.

The two-seater Vickers Supermarine Spitfire was built in 1944 and sold to the South African Air Force in 1948, where it served for an unknown period.
