1,328 British Spitfire Mk.IXs were supplied to the Russians during WWII. One of these Spitfires was PT879, built at the Vickers Armstrong Factory and arriving in Murmansk in October of 1944 assigned to the 2nd Squadron 767th Regiment and 122nd Division of the Russian Air Force. On May 18, 1945 PT879 was involved in a training dogfight. The aircraft only had 18 hours and 29 minutes of flying time when another Spitfire cut off its tail and the pilot bailed out. The wreckage was later recovered and eventually restored by the Hangar 11 team.Opening canopy

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.
