Cazenove was captured, and sent to Stalag Luft III, where he participated in the Great Escape along with another pilot who had flown this same plane, and who was portrayed by Richard Attenborough in the classic Steve McQueen and James Garner film.
The plane was found decades later, and eventually wound up in the hands of a wealthy collector. He ensured its proper restoration, and is now selling it to benefit a Royal Air Force Charity.
For even more on the plane, Christie's made an outstanding interactive documentary.
Aaron Miller is the Rides editor for Supercompressor, and can be found on Twitter. He wonders how nervous the pilot was the first time he flew an old Spitfire that had spent so long under the sand.
