Corgi Aviation Archive Series Diecast Model

Supermarine Spitfire Mk.VC - Sgt George Beurling (WWII Ace - 31.5 victories), No. 249 Squadron, RAF, Takali, Malta, July 1942

1:72 Scale.  Length: 5".  Wingspan: 6.2"

Limited Edition

Many men made their reputations in the frantic struggle over Malta's skies, but perhaps no one more than Canadian Sgt. George ‘Screwball’ Beurling. Arguably, the most naturally gifted Allied fighter pilot of WWII. Beurling shot down no less than 26 confirmed enemy aircraft between July and October 1942. No other allied pilot could claim more victories in such a short period of time

The Supermarine Spitfire is a British single-seat fighter aircraft used by the Royal Air Force and many other Allied countries during World War II and into the 1950s as a front line fighter and in secondary roles. The Spitfire was first flown on March 5, 1936 and entered service with the RAF on August 4 1938. It served in several roles, including interceptor, photo-reconnaissance, fighter bomber, carrier-based fighter, and trainer. The Spitfire was built in many variants, using several wing configurations. It was produced in greater numbers than any other British aircraft and was the only British fighter in continuous production throughout the war. When production ended in February 1948, a total of 20,351 Spitfires of all variants had been built.
