Narration

The Supermarine Spitfire was a single-seat fighter plane, developed for the British Royal Navy. It was designed by R. J. Mitchell and produced by the Supermarine company. It was commissioned in 1938. The golden age of these legendary planes was World War II, with their most successful mission, together with the Hurricanes, being the Battle of Britain fought and won against the German Luftwaffe.

The Supermarine was 9 m long and 4 m wide, with a wingspan of over 11 m. The three-tonne plane was powered by Rolls-Royce engines that allowed a maximum speed of 700 km/h. The plane´s combat range was over 700 km at a 600 km/h cruise speed.
