TD314 was built at Castle Bromwich in late 1944 and fitted with a Merlin 70 as a High-Level Fighter (HFIXE). She was one of the last high-back Spitfires built as the production line switched to low-back aircraft in February of 1945. She was delivered to 33 MU at Lyneham on 30th March 1945, transferring later that month to 30 MU before a further move to 6 MU where she was prepared for service with 183 (Gold Coast) Squadron at Chilbolton on the 24th June 1945. 183 squadron only kept its Spitfires for a short time before re-equipping with Tempests. Her complete story can be found HERE.
