Stories from the Edge of the North Kent Coast by Simon Moores.

Flitting around the countryside this afternoon, I came across Charlie Brown and his Spitfire, parked-up at Rochester. I watched it arrive yesterday afternoon from one display and it's out to France today for another.
I thought I recognized the aircraft and Charlie B. said I was right, it was the the same one I had a good look at in 2005, in another 'Blog' piece I wrote.
Then, it was temporarily marooned at Manston by bad weather on its way out to Malta, painted blue for the special occasion and with the registration "U2". Corgi made a special model of the Spitfire for the 'Merlins over Malta' event and I managed to get one for my small collection.
