Final mission: Veteran pilot, 91, flies in from Norway reunited with the Spitfire he last flew in 1945

A Second World War veteran has been reunited with the Spitfire he flew on his final mission nearly seventy years ago.

Lieutenant Rolf Kolling, now 91, returned to North Weald Airfield in Essex last Friday to catch another glimpse of the Mark IX Spitfire.

He was joined by wingman and compatriot Eigel Stigset at the home of 332 Squadron, where celebrations were taking place this weekend to mark the 70th anniversary of the wartime links between North Weald and Norway. for more click here
