The aircraft first served with the RAF, then the Indian Air Force. This aircraft was one of eight Spitfires recovered from India by Duxford-based Ormond and Wensley Haydon-Baillie in 1977. It passed through several owners before being returned to the air by Historic Flying Ltd. In 1998. SM845 (G-BUOS) was registered as SE-BIN on the 25th of May 2009.
