No idea which one it was.
May see one on Saturday if it flies over Spalding on its way from Pinchbeck to Horefield.

Nope, not today :)
Neither of us felt like it :D

I just heard 558 on the scanner, talking to something like 259.something something something, I didn't catch the whole number. Don't know which frequency that is or why I have it stored though :)) but it must have been important for me to have physically typed it in and saved it at some point :)) .

Photo recon Spitfire yesterday at Spalding Station.

XH558 was over Spalding again today between 1445 & 1500.
No sight of it from me, even though I was there :( :(.
A post on Facebook from a friend who lives in Spalding posted a couple of pictures.
