like a late series LF Merlin engined Spitfire - possibly a Mark XVI
with clipped wings and teardrop canopy. Post war, with no camouflage. It
carries 609 (West Riding) RAuxAF PR markings and the registration looks
like TE437 which was built June 1945
and allocated to 609 Sq. April 1947 at Yeadon. On the 22nd March 1948
TF437 bounced on landing and tipped over. She was finally scrapped in
1950. That looks like Whitehouse Lane and the Chevin in the background.
