Spitfire
"<" back one image Spitfire 
 “If it looks right it’ll fly right, you only needed to think where you wanted to go and the Spitfire would go there”, “you climbed into a Spitfire, strapped it on and became one with the aircraft’, comments made by many of the Spitfire pilots who flew (and still fly) them. Designed originally by RJ Mitchell as a racing aircraft for landing on water, not as a fighter, the Spitfire was the most widely produced and strategically important British single-seat fighter of World War II. Along with the Hurricane, it was a stalwart of the Battle of Britain in 1940, served in every theatre of the war and was produced in more variants than any other British aircraft. It was also flown by the ground breaking women of the Air Transport Auxiliary (ATA), recruited by Pauline Gower from 1940. The Spitfire pictured here is from Classic Wings at IWM Duxford.
