From this book page 13 -

"At the time of writing there are more than 40 airworthy Spitfires around the world, and work is well advanced on others set to join them. The success of the grand flypast of Spitfires over Southampton on 5 March 2036, to commemorate the centenary of the maiden flight of the prototype, seems assured."
