It flew over the Poplar Farm Primary school specially, as it was organised by assistant head Miss Mason, and it from the Lincolnshire Show celebrations currently happening across the county.

The children and teachers of Poplar Farm Primary School were able to see the plane flying over and said on their Twitter account: "Wow! What a fantastic start to our afternoon!

"Thank you @RAFBBMF our children loved the fly-past!"

Mrs Thorpe, administrator at the school added: "The children absolutely loved it.

"They were outside as a part of our two day enrichment festival when the spitfire flew over.

"As it flew over they all waved."
