    Default Remains of Spitfire R6897

    We have discussed this aircraft before, lost in a mid-collision over Lincolnshire in 1943, while with 411 Squadron. A reader of my web pages is asking if anyone knows if any parts of this aircraft, including the engine, are kept in a museum somewhere, and what museum that might be.

    Bill,

    I don't know if this was mentioned previously but it was excavated in 1982 - see http://www.ww2aircraft.net/forum/aircraft-picture-requests/spitfire-r6897-28785.html . Someone appears to have some parts.
