    Today,s aircraft is making her debut here in my daily posts. She is a Spitfire Mk. IIB and is on loan to the National War Museum in Ottawa Ontario. Ser # P8332 She is a combat veteran.
    Sadly, this is how she has been chosen to be displayed. There is no other view available, no other angle and IMHO, if this is how she is going to be displayed then the war museum should give it back to the Aviation and Space Museum from whom it is on long term loan. Such a disgrace to have it "hidden" such as it is. A rare beauty for sure!

    Nice stuff Jeff. You're right, it is poorly displayed, but the way that museum is built is not ideal for aircraft. They could put it in the big tank hall though, which is a fantastic part of the museum.

    If not the tank hall then the front lobby would be fine. It looks like to move it they would have to disassemble it.

    Oh well, onwards and upwards as they say.
