    These Spitfires are owned by HFL (Historic Flying Ltd) in Duxford.
    HFL is specialised in Spitfire restoration.
    Check their web site: Welcome to Historic Flying Limited
    Other than that, I don't know who's the lucky guy who took the picture of these beautiful flying machines...
    Silver and red colors are from the Blackpool Air races of 1948/49.
    Mk XVI: TD-248 built in Nov 1992
    Mk XIV: RN-201 built in June 2002
    Maybe would they be enough kind to put you on this picture track...
