Supermarine Spitfire: Volume 2


by: Phil H. Listemann
By 1941, the career of the Spitfire is well underway and the RAF has a powerful aircraft with the Mark V that exceeds all expectations. Yet the RAF is already preparing for its successor and new versions are being considered to keep the fighter a step ahead of the opponent. After the Mark VI, VII and VIII were produced in limited numbers, it is the Mk IX, commissioned urgently in the summer of 1942, which becomes the most famous Spitfire. Manufactured until the end of the war and used on all fronts, this aircraft became the standard fighter of the RAF and was widely exported, particularly after the end of hostilities.

Scratch-building brand new Spitfires or restoring original examples to airworthy condition has become big business, with aircrafts changing hands for several million dollars apiece.
