The Supermarine_Spitfire is one of the most remarkable single-seat fighters of the Second World War. Mainly used by the RAF, it gave rise to a multitude of versions never before seen in aviation history.

From the first flight of the prototype on March 5, 1936 to its withdrawal from service, no less than 24 versions were created, from the widespread Mk V to the Mk IX with more powerful weapons, including lesser-known versions such as the Seafire with folding wings and a landing gear, the Mk XII, XIV... with a Griffon engine, and the high altitude interceptor versions Mk VI and VII...

The Spitfire's elliptical wings gave it a very recognizable appearance, their thin cross-section gave it impressive speed and maneuverability close to the best AXE fighters.

Supermarine chief engineer Reginald Mitchell's brilliant basic design made the Spitfire a favorite among pilots. It served throughout World War II and, with all its variants, was in every battle.

More than 21,000 aircraft were built and Spitfires remained in active service until the 1960s.

Barnstormer offers here a polo inspired by a Spitfire Mk IX of 453 Sqn. RAF, 125th Wing operating from an ALG (Advanced Landing Grounds-field aerodrome) in Normandy in the summer of 1944...
