The Spitfire story

£9.99

Product description

The Supermarine Type 300, a light single-seater fighter armed with eight machine guns and powered by a Rolls-Royce PV XII Merlin engine, made its first flight from Eastleigh, Southampton on 5th March 1936. registered K 5054, it took off into clear skies and flew for 20 minutes. The flight was a success.

Three months later the contract was signed for 310 aircraft - the Spitfire had arrived. By the time production ended in February 1948 some 20,400 aircraft had been built, in 22 different versions, and the Mark 24 was one of the finest piston-engined interceptor fighters in the world.

With over 350 photographs, line artworks and extensive appendices, The Spitfire Story is a fitting tribute to the aircraft that more than any other represents the defiant spirit of victory in the Battle of Britain.
