Andy Saunders made a welcome return to present his account of how Supermarine Spitfire P9374 was recovered from its 1940 crash site on a Calais beach and subsequently brought back to life, taking to the air again in September 2011.
Unfortunately constraints applied by Andy's publisher, due to a delay in publishing his book relating to this fascinating story, meant that he could only cover the basics.
Despite this set back Andy covered three other flying incidents much to the appreciation of the well attended audience.
Andy has agreed to return in 2012 when he can tell our members the full story of Spitfire in the Sands.
For just £10 per year, you can join SMHS and be involved in our projects!
