In the history of the aeroplane there is one aircraft that is fully deserving of the accolade “legendary” – the Supermarine Spitfire. Against overwhelming odds in the Battle of Britain (July-October 1940), and taking part in major actions in every operational theatre in World War II, the Spitfire became a symbol of victory and was perceived by the public to be the RAF fighter. Built in greater numbers than any other aircraft of the time, examples of this icon of British aviation are still flying today, paying tribute to her designer R. J. Mitchell, and in honour of the ‘Few’ who flew and maintained her in those dark days of war.
