A tribute to the Spitfire, a Mk XIX in distinctive D-Day markings high above the clouds. Developed from the Supermarine racing seaplanes with its thin aero - dynamic elliptical wings. The Spitfire was an elegant and very efficient fighter. In testimony to the soundness of the original design, the Spitfire remained sleek as the Me109 added bumps and cowls in an effort to gain more performance.

At the outbreak of war, the RAF had only nine squadrons of Spitfires growing to nineteen as the Battle of Britain commenced.
