Owners vow to rebuild historic airplane.
A historic World War II Spitfire fighter was damaged in a crash at Biggin Hill Airport outside London this week, but its owners vowed the warbird will fly again after the pilot performed a “textbook” emergency landing.
Media outlets reported that pilot Dan Griffith lost power moments after takeoff and managed to put the airplane down near the airport perimeter fence without causing catastrophic damage.
