Thanks for checking out the Sept. 13th issue of Nellis-Creech Desert Lightning News! Fans of vintage aircraft got a huge treat at the end of August, as the Silver Spitfire made a stop at Nellis AFB as part of its round-the-world journey. The aircraft was restored by Aviation Adventures Ltd. and made its first flight since the 1950s on July 11, 2019. The circumnavigation of the globe trip began on Aug. 5. The expedition will reunite the Spitfire with the many countries that owe their freedom, at least in part, to this iconic aircraft.
