Spitfire Mks 1-V - Combat Legend
by Peter Caygill

In the furious skies of the Battle of britain, one airvraft captured the imagination of the British people - it was the Supermarine Spitfire. This diminutive and elegant fighter represented the last hope against invasion by Hitler's unstoppable Blitzkrieg. Reginald Mitchell's innovative design was born of racing seaplanes built to win the Schneider Trophy - the most famous air races of the 1920s and 1930s. The Mk 1 first flew in 1936 and the type entered RAF service in 1938.
Wartime development was rapid. Part of the success story was the Rolls-Royce Merlin engine. As this improived, so did the Spit. The Mk V was built in greater numbers than any nother model and provided Fighter Command's backbone during 1941-2
