The Spitfire

An icon. A legend. It has become the symbol of a nation’s heroic defiance of Nazi Germany.
R.J. Mitchell’s Spitfire, first flown in 1936, may be powered by a piston engine and a propellor, but its streamlined design and balletic grace have not grown old. It seems today as breathtakingly beautiful as it ever did.
It was flown by pilots of many nations with a common cause. RAF Stories has collected some reminiscences of those who knew and flew this astonishing aircraft.
