You know that:

  • The designer, Reginald J. Mitchell, began work on a new fighter to RAF specifications as early as 1931.
  • Eventually, after many modifications, perhaps the most famous fighter of the Second World War was produced, but the Hawker Hurricane was still the most numerous machine in the RAF's arsenal.
  • The very first Spitfire was commissioned on 4 August 1938 into service with 19 RAF Fighter Squadron.
  • For the first time, a pilot had to swear that he would not forget to extend the landing gear when landing, something that pilots were not accustomed to with the older machines.
  • The Spitfire aircraft featured the first ever use of recessed rivets to maintain the low profile of the wings and many other technologies that were mored at the time.
  • The German planes were also very good, but they lacked one essential thing, namely the extremely reliable and powerful legendary Rolls-Royce engine.
  • The Bubbletop machines were given a drop-shaped cockpit cover for better pilot visibility.
  • Pilots initially rejected the new cockpit shape, but mission experience proved the benefits of this design. In total, more than 24 versions of the Mk.XVI Bubbletop were produced, with a total of 1,211 units produced.
  • 60 airworthy machines are still in service today.
