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.
Best close-air ground support weapon in our arsenal. Was privileged to watch these awesome machines fly during early testing days. And go to training at Fairchild training center Long Island New York to work on them.
