The Supermarine Spitfire is a British single-seat fighter aircraft that was used by the Royal Air Force and many other Allied countries during and after the Second World War. Mitchell designed the Spitfire's distinctive elliptical wing to have the thinnest possible cross-section; this thin wing enabled the Spitfire to have a higher top speed. Top speed: 378 mph Wingspan: 37' (11 m) Length: 30' (9.12 m) Designer: R. J. Mitchell Manufacturer: Supermarine

Supermarine Spitfire Mk IX. With the clear superiority of the Focke-Wulf Fw 190 over the Spitfire VB, the Air Ministry made the decision that Mk.VC airframes should be converted to take the more powerful Merlin 60 engine and, as a result, many of the early IXs were converted Mk VCs.
