I am not knowledgeable about British aircraft. A friend sent this link, I found it interesting.

Lovely job, looks as good as new, he mentions the machine guns (4 X .303) as far as I know the Seafire had 2 X 20mm canon as well. I suppose the vid had been condensed a bit here and there with some auditing so some stuff went missing.
But wow that is a credit to them considering the condition it was in. :shock:

Wow! Just watched the video. What a beautiful aircraft :) . (A lovely sound as well.)

Hats off to the chaps involved in the restoration.
