Y2K Spitfire Aerial Demonstration & Fly-by at Nautical Days in Comox
Many thanks to our friends at Comox Nautical Days for adding us to their full schedule of events, and for the write-up below.
Y2K Spitfire Aerial Demonstration & Fly-by – 5PM
Making a triumphant return to the Comox Valley, the F/L Arnold Supermarine Spitfire Mk IX will been seen in a dramatic fly-by the Comox Harbour jetty shortly after 5PM. The Spitfire restoration, which began at CFB Comox, features a 2,000 horsepower, V12 Rolls Royce Merlin engine and is painted in tribute to Arnold Roseland, a Canadian who flew 442 Squadron’s Y2-K aircraft more than 65 times before being shot down and killed in 1944 over France.
I cannot seem to find the DATE of the Flyby demonstration.
Might you be willing to point me in the right direction, or simply afford me the info, which i ms eluding me, for some reason?
Please ignore the request, above. It’s late, and I missed it unwittingly – then found it at:
Yes seen It fly over crown isle golf course today it did two trips around I had goose bumps awesome just awesome to see, we will try and visit the air base to get a close up of this magical plane the might of the British Air Force in World War Two.
Will it be passing by Nanaimo at any point, can’t get to Comox, be nice to see if it’s passing by.
