Brad Pitt has bought a 2-million-pound vintage Spitfire fighter aircraft after reportedly becoming obsessed with World War II while filming his upcoming war drama 'Fury'.

A source told the Sun that Pitt, who has done everything from sleep in the trenches to learn to drive a tank for the film, has now invested in one of the iconic machines.

Meanwhile, the 49-year-old actor, who is already a qualified pilot, will reportedly receive lessons on how to safely manage the vintage aircraft, which was popularly used by the RAF and other allied forces during the Second World War, at the Boultbee Flying Academy in Oxford.
