Supermarine Spitfire PR.Mk.XI – “PL965”, Royal Air Force

1:48 Scale.  Length: 7.5".  Wingspan: 9.2"

Spitfire Mk. XI PL965 “R” was manufactured at RAF Aldermaston in 1944 and was delivered on October 9, 1944 to No. 9 MU before going to No. 16 Squadron based in Melsbroek, Belgium. In March 1945 the squadron was relocated to Eindhoven Netherlands and then to Celle, Germany before returning to England in 1946. On July 27, 1947 it was sold to the Royal Netherlands Air Force School and in 1960 it went to the Dutch National War Museum. After a few more owners and moves the aircraft was painted in her original 16 Squadron markings and still flies today.

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.
