According to TVNZ – “A rare two seater Spitfire fighter has been damaged in what has been called an embarrassing landing accident at Ardmore Airport, south of Auckland“.  The pilot (who TVNZ believes to be Doug Brooker) was not injured.  The TR9 ran off the runway around 11:50am Thursday.   The rare fighter was not badly damaged but the runway was blocked for some time until it could be removed.  Authorities have not released an official cause for the accident but witnesses say the wind was a contributing factor.  Warbird Radio will bring you more details on this developing story throughout the day.
