1951 … Year of the Spitfire’s Final Conflict

The Supermarine Spitfire is a British single-seat fighter aircraft that was used by the Royal Air Force and many other Allied countries throughout the Second World War. It is certainly one of the most famous and popular aircraft ever produced.
The aircraft pictured above is a Mark 18. The last RAF Spitfire offensive sorties anywhere were flown by the FR.18s of No 60 Squadron on 1 January 1951 during the Malayan Emergency.
