The Supermarine Spitfire was a single-seat, single-engine fighter aircraft that saw service before during & after WWII with the RAF & other allied countries. It was the only British fighter to be produced continuously throughout the war & continues to be a symbol of British aviation.
The Mk.XVI Spitfire was a variation on the Mk.XI that was optimised for low level operations. Many had clipped wings & were powered by a Packard Merlin engine that was licensed built from America & had slightly bulged engine cowlings to accommodate this. Just over 1000 of this type were built in total.
