Liz King, who lives close by, heard the plane flying before the emergency landing.
She said: "We didn't see it land but we heard it.
"We first heard it flying overhead. It then stuttered and cut out. We then heard a whoosh sound.
"It looks like the pilot landed it pretty well."
Now it's been revealed the pilot who skilfully crash-landed the Spitfire cheated death four years ago during a mid-air crash in front of thousands of spectators at a show.
Rob Davies, 68, MBE, has his own collection of historic aircraft and is a well-known face at flying displays.
His plane clipped wings with another Mustang at the annual Flying Legends Airshow in Duxford, Cambs and he parachuted to safety from just 250ft.
Mr. Davies, a former RAF mechanic, was flying near his own landing strip at Woodchurch when the Spitfire suffered engine failure shortly after take-off.
There are thought to be only around 50-odd airworthy Spitfiresin the world today.
