Supermarine Spitfire

The Supermarine Spitfire is the most famous and well known British aircraft of WWII. It was first flown in March of 1936. It was used throughout WWII and went through a number of changes. Spitfires served well into the 1950s with the RAF and the Seafire version used by the Royal Navy served into the 1960s. Over 20,000 Spitfires were built along with over 2,500 Seafires. Today, more than 50 survive in flyable condition. The Spitfire featured here is a Spitfire LF Mk. IX E that was built in 1944. This is one of the many warbirds owned by the Planes of Fame museum in Chino.
