The Supermarine Spitfire is a British single-seat fighter aircraft flown by the Royal Air Force and many other Allied countries during World War II and into the 1950s. First flown on March 5, 1936 the Spitfire entered operational service with the RAF in 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 the only British fighter in continuous production throughout the war. When production ended in February 1948, 20,351 Spitfires of all variants had been built.
