Bonhams Scrambles Spitfire to Altitude of £1.5m

Aircraft is the first two-seater Spitfire to be offered at public auction for more than twenty years.

"We are greatly honoured to be entrusted with the sale of such a distinguished and historic aircraft," says James Knight, MD of Bonhams Collector’s Motoring Department. "As Bonhams is the last of the great international fine art auction houses to remain under British management, the sale of an aircraft so linked to the history and very survival of our nation has enormous significance for us here."
