The Spitfi re is undoubtedly the most famous British aircraft of all time. The mere mention of the name is enough to summon up vivid mental images of aerial combat, and tumultuous battles high above the puff y clouds rolling across southern England. Of course for most people these images are purely imaginary as so few survivors have fi rst-hand experience of the Battle of Britain. But the Spitfi re’s almost legendary status has endured and more than seventy years after its fi nest hour, it is still regarded as the classical ultimate expression of fi ghter aircraft design. Precisely why the Spitfi re has earned this status isn’t too diffi cult to establish, and it would be fair to say that the aircraft was in many respects no more advanced than other contemporary designs.
