New book captures the last Spitfires in stunning air to air action. Soaring into the skies above the green and pleasant land they so spectacularly fought to defend 76 years ago, they are the last of the few airworthy Spitfires left.
The Supermarine Spitfire IIa, an early mark. Fast and maneuverable, I believe this is the most beautiful airplane ever! Look at those lovely elliptical wings! Stanford Tuck of the RAF flew this plane and the Hurricane in the Battle of Britain.
