The Spitfire was made in England in 1945 and served with the Royal Air Force until the early 1950s before being stored, according to a media release from the museum.
That plane is going to be restored to flying condition, with Rohrer saying it will fill the gap of a fighter type aircraft in the museum's collection.
Jim VanDyk, the museum's chief engineer, says the plan is a "time capsule."
"It is very original having remained in almost the same condition since when it was retired from military service and has been kept indoors most of the time since then," he said in the media release.
"Once restored, it has the potential to be one of the most original Spitfires flying in the world."
