Supermarine Mark 1A Spitfire

Spitfires are often credited with winning the Battle of Britain and were flown by some of the most famous fighter pilots for the duration of WWII. The Museum's 1940 Supermarine Mark 1A Spitfire is positioned in a "cat and mouse" game with the enemy German Stuka. The Spitfire is shown in an attacking, banking position to show off its unique elliptical wings, while the Stuka is mid-dive.
