Flying Legend - 60th Anniversary 1936-96 New edition
Spitfire by John M. Dibbs
Book DescriptionAs much a national hero as Wellington, Nelson or Montgomery, the Supermarine Spitfire has become the most recognisable icon of World War 2 for several generations of Britons. From the throaty growl of its Rolls-Royce Merlin or Griffon, to its beautifully tapered elliptical wings, the Spitfire is a true aeronautical thoroughbred. Regarded by many as the saviour of the Sceptred Isle 'in its darkest hour', the Spitfire is without a doubt the most famous combat aircraft the world has ever seen. The year 2000 celebrates the 60th anniversary of the Battle of Britain, the Spitfire's 'finest hour'. This lavishly illustrated volume makes a stunning pictorial tribute to the airworthy survivors of today.
