Spitfire - The Last and the First by Roy Cross.


Spitfire - The Last and the First by Roy Cross.

Two Spitfires - the world's most famous fighter aeroplane and the mosy outstanding success of British wartime aviation. The whole production lifespan is encapsulated in this image. The prototype machine K5054, built in 1936 is seen flying behind the final Mk24 of 1946. From the first flight in March 1936, it took over two years before the first RAF squadr (No.19) was equipped with the production Mk.I version in August 1938, and by June 1940 there were only nineteen Spitfire squadrons. They formed a significant part of the force that fought and won the Battle of Britain against the Luftwaffe.
