Y2K Spitfire Landing in Comox
The return of the Y2K Spitfire to Comox finalises the many years of work and dedication to preserve and restore this iconic aircraft by volunteers and aviation enthusiasts here and across Canada.
During her reconstruction from 2000 to 2012, the Spitfire was always a solid tourist draw to the Valley and her return will certainly draw national and international attention.
