Battle of Britain 1940
Without doubt the most famous British fighter aircraft. It always inspired devotion from pilots and mechanics alike to this very day. Flight Lt. Geoff Wellum in his 92 Sqn. Spitfire, during an all-too rare quiet moment, one evening during the summer of 1940 - the height of the Battle of Britain.
The aircraft that inspired devotion from pilots and mechanics alike, and such statements as she really was the perfect flying machine; she hadnt got a vice at all, was also admired by those on the ground. In propaganda posters and illustrations, the Spitfire represented Britains defiance and commitment to ultimate victory.
