On Thursday the Prime Minister gave his backing to the Spitfire Tribute Foundation.
Southampton's fund rasing campaign to build a fitting and permanent memorial to the famous WW2 fighter plane has received a welcome boost. Prime Minister Gordon Brown met a delegation of business leaders, heritage experts and city councillors at a reception at Number 10 Downing Street, helping to elevate the campaign to a national and international level.
The campaign aims to raise £1.5m to fund structure which would be 100ft long.
