In the Previous Picture: PV202 Spitfire T Mk IX was wearing Irish Air Corp Markings as IAC 161 A new scheme was applied in April 2007 with the markings of 'H-98' of the Dutch Air Force, which operated 3 Aircraft of the same type from 1946 until 1954.
Since this picture was taken the Aircraft has suffered a landing gear collapse whilst taxying to the apron at Lelystad Airport, Netherlands in May 2008, but it was not serious and was back flying again within two weeks. The Aircraft retained it Dutch livery until mid-2010 when it was painted in an RAF 92 Squadron Scheme with the Squadron code QV-I.
