More early Flying Legends 2018 participation was announced last week with the addition of Comanche Warbirds' two Spitfire Mk.Is to the flying programme. Serial numbers AR213 and X4650 are two of just four airworthy Mk.I Spitfires in the world and are pictured here flying a lyrical formation aerobatic routine, in the hands of Paul Bonhomme and Dan Friedkin respectively, at Duxford's Battle of Britain Air Show 2015.
