Yes the reason for the replica Spitfires and Hurricanes at Stations that were Spitfire and Huricane bases is down to the upkeep of the aircraft. The gate guards are still on RAF charge(just like those in the RAF museum) and they must be maintained otherwise one day all Coningsby(for example) will have is four piles of corroded metal instead of guardians.
