Unique, bespoke Bentley with a 27-ltre Rolls-Royce Meteor engine (Which, to be technically correct, ISN'T from a Spitfire, like the ever-so-reliable Daily Mail says - the Meteor was the un-supercharged version as used in Tanks)
The last of the few...New book captures the last Spitfires in stunning air to air action. Soaring into the skies above the green and pleasant land they so spectacularly fought to defend 76 years ago, they are the last of the few airworthy Spitfires left.
The Spitfire was a low-wing monoplane that was first flown in 1936 and was first put into service with the Royal Air Force in 1938. It was modified continuously throughout the war to serve in a variety of roles: fighter (with notable success at high altitudes), fighter-bomber, and photo reconnaissance plane.
