Narrative:
Spitfire TA805 (G-PMNF) was involved in a landing incident today (22 May 2014) at Biggin Hill; the aircraft drifted off the runway on to the grass, which is unfortunately still very soft from the winter's heavy rain. TA805 tipped up onto its nose suffering damage to the propeller. The pilot is unhurt, shaken but not stirred. The aircraft is safely back in the hangar and will be airworthy as soon as possible.
