Spitfire Mk FR.XVIIIe SM845 was built at Chattis Hill, England in 1945 and it was delivered to 39 MU (Maintenance Unit) on May 30, that year. 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. Spitfire SM845 was damaged in Sweden at Tynset in Norway when the aircraft veered off the runway during landing.

The Spitfire was subsequently returned to the UK where it has undergone extensive restoration to flying condition by Airframe Assemblies and Historic Flying Limited, SM845 made its first post restoration first flight in December 2013.
