One of my favorite aircraft still flying today, Spitfire Mk IX MH434 is an original, 1943 beauty which I had the joy of seeing at the Flying Legends Airshow, Duxford England. Here she is taxiing for her part in the show, with a P-51D Mustang behind her running it’s engine.
Christofer Nolan’s superb film Dunkirk features lots of great Spitfire action (although they are eariler versions of course, Mk Is and IIs). It has some of the most realistic air combat ever put to film, and I highly recommend seeing the movie.
For more information on this wonderful old warbird, MH434 of The Old Flying Machine Company has it’s own website here.
