The Hangar 11 Collection based at North Weald in Essex, comprises two superb airworthy examples of legendary World War 2 fighter aircraft, each with extensive wartime histories. Plus another rare PR MK IX Spitfire PT879 currently in restoration but more about that below. These special aircraft are regular participants on the UK and European Airshow scene under the Hangar 11 umbrella, operated by Peter Teichman and a selected few of the finest and most experienced display pilots in the UK.

  • Supermarine Spitfire PR Mk XI
    The only airworthy example of a Supermarine Spitfire Mk XI. This rare and original aircraft carried out 40 missions over occupied Europe with 16 squadron RAF, during 1944-1945 and has been the subject of a superb book called "Spitfire in Blue". Strafed by ME 262's in 1945, she retains her originality with pride. This Spitfire has just 500 hours total time to this day, including her RAF service. Read More...
