Owner and military enthusiast Karl Edmondson, 52, from South Shields explained the importance of this aircraft to the war effort, which eventually saw Germany successfully defeated.

'The aircraft's top speed was about 120 miles-per-hour, ' said Mr Edmondson.

'It's one of the last of its squadron, and was used to support ground troops in their push through Europe.

'It was used to fly just above the tree line and spot enemy troops before the pilots would radio allied troops in charge of artillery.

'Interestingly, Star Trek actor James Doohan who played Montgomery 'Scotty' Scott flew in the plane's sister squadron 666 during the Second World War.'

Buyers have an option to purchase an engine for the plane, which is sadly no-longer flying - with one enquiring whether the engine can be purchased on its own.

'This aircraft really belongs in a museum, ' he said.
