Spitfire XVIII landing prang in Germany

Unfortunately Spitfire SM845 has come to grief again today, this time in Germany, fortunately with no damage to the pilot - left wing has failed at the root so ARCO or whoever will need to de-bend/replace some fundamental parts by the look of it. New prop as well, so potential damage to the Griffon. A previous landing accident while in Swedish hands led to it being on its back with sad results for the pilot.
