The Supermarine Spitfire was, by 1940, the interceptor of choice for Fighter Command. It was capable of speeds of over 360 mph and had exceptional maneuverability. An excellent dog-fighter, the Spitfire MK I is seen as a symbol of ‘The Few’ vital to the defence of the United Kingdom against the previously all-conquering Luftwaffe. Along with the Hurricane, it cemented its place in history during the Battle of Britain.
