Supermarine Seafires

(Caroline Sheen)

Only four Supermarine Seafires, the naval version of the legendary Spitfire, exist today. This one, owned by Dr. Wes “Doc” Stricker, was retired from the Royal Canadian Navy in 1950. It was restored in recent years by Jim Cooper, and made its first flight under civilian ownership on July 1, 2010.
