EP120 is a Supermarine Spitfire V
- Pearl Harbor.
Appears as AR3185 (RF°M).
Built at Castle Bromwich as part of a 23 August 1941 order for 904 Mk Vs, EP120 was passed to 45MU on 23 May 1942. Assigned to 501 Squadron on 4 June, it struck Spitfire V AB403[N 1] on the runway at Iblsey on 16 July, sustaining Category AC[N 2] damage. Repaired on site, EP120 again sustained Category AC damage during the Dieppe operation on 19 August.
Passed to 19 Squadron on 9 September, and then to 402 Squadron on 22 April 1943, EP120 was sent to 53 MU on 12 October 1944. Re-registered as 5377M at St Athan on 13 July, it later became 8070M.
