The Supermarine Spitfire is probably the most famous aircraft of all time. It is a British Single-seat Fighter (although there were two seat trainer variants later) that saw extensive service for the Royal Air Force and its allies during the 2nd World War. It was produced in several different variants and was constantly updated to ensure that it was always one of the most able aircrafts on the front line in all theatres of war. Famously powered by the distinctive Rolls Royce Merlin (and later Griffin) engine, the spitfire is a true icon of British engineering.

During the 2nd world war the Spitfire proved its worth time and time again, seeing early success in the Battle of Britain and later adapting to bomber escort, photo reconnaissance and ground attack roles. It was the most numerous allied fighter, produced throughout the whole of war unlike any other aircraft. Today there are over 60 Spitfires still flying, but with several restorations taking place this number is ever growing. The sight of the iconic elliptical wings and the sound the Rolls Royce Merlin Engine overhead still stirs emotions and feelings of admiration for those who flew and maintained them during our darkest hours.

Supermarine Spitfire PRXI PL983/G-PRXI photo reconnaissance aircraft was designed to operate at high altitudes (over 30,000 ft) as well as at high speeds of over 400 mph, and as such was the fastest of all the Merlin powered Spitfires. PL983 has had a varied career; as well as seeing service in Europe during the war, she has been part of American Squadrons, served in post-war Germany and competed in air racing.

After a successful period with the Shuttleworth Trust and various other civilian owners tragically, PL983 suffered a fatal accident at Rouen in France in June 2001. Following this the aircraft required an extensive rebuild and therefore was relocated to Duxford. It is currently the latest aircraft to emerge from the workshop of Historic Flying Ltd (HFL), now wearing its wartime Photo reconnaissance Blue livery once again, this extremely rare and unusual example of a Spitfire has been a welcome sight at air displays and special events across Europe.
