The newest addition to the airshow circuit is the Spitfire Mk. IX PV270. Restored by Brendon Deere in memory of his uncle, fighter ace, Al Deere, PV270 made its first post-restoration flight on 18 March 2009 at Ohakea, New Zealand, piloted by Keith Skilling. PV270 has been painted in the colour scheme of Alan Deere while he was RAF Wing Commander at Biggin Hill.
This video shows the aircraft flying in the evening at Classic Fighters Airshow, Omaka airfield near Blenheim New Zealand. Classic Fighters at Omaka was the public debut of PV270. The weather was perfect throughout the weekend allowing the aircraft to fly six times over the three days of the show.
