Supermarine Spitfire PR Mk XIX

Reg. F-AZJS Supermarine Spitfire PR Mk XIX c/n 6S-585110.
In 2009, PS890 was powered by a Griffon 58A (former engine of an Avro Shackleton) with its contra-rotating propeller. Few months later, the Spitfire was modified with the same powerplant she has had in 1946 and a five-blade propeller and then was painted in CBI theater RAF paint scheme. This Spitfire was sold to Royal Thai Air Force in 1954 before being bought in 1962 by Ed Maloney.

Supermarine Spitfire & Messerschmitt Bf 109

Georges is dreaming.
A Spitfire (left) is in the 6 o'clock of a Bf 109 (we guess it through the white paper) : perhaps not from the Battle of Britain as the Messerschmitt's wingtips are yellow.

Musée de l'Air et de l'Espace

Footbridge inside the Musée de l'Air et de l'Espace (Aéroport de Paris-Le Bourget) ... but no aircraft of this museum is seen.
A major restoration job took place in 2019 and the main hall then lost that blue hue and walkway.
