In April 1945 Johnnie Johnson was promoted to Group Captain and placed in command of the No 125 Wing. The squadron used Spitfire XIVs equipped with the latest Griffon engines. On May 8, 1945 shortly after Germany surrendered, Johnson and 125 Squadron moved to Copenhagen Denmark. Johnson’s postwar Supermarine Spitfire was MV257 and was the last Spitfire to carry his initials JE-J. Johnson’s WWII record was 515 sorties with 34 aircraft destroyed, 7 shared, 3 probables, 10 damaged and one shared, destroyed on the ground. All of his “kills” were fighters.

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 in August 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.
