The BBMF MkV banking around the top corner at Rougham. Besides the serial, AB910 wears the markings of AB502, the personal aircraft flown by Wg Cdr Ian Gleed over North Africa in 1943. A Battle of Britain veteran, Gleed's final Spitfire was marked with his initials rather than squadron codes, a common practise amongst officers of his seniority in the RAF. Gleed was shot down and killed whilst flying AB502 in April 1943. AB910 was repainted for the 2007 season.
