Special re-printed issue from the ‘Aviation Classics’ series we celebrate the 80th anniversary of the Second World War’s most famous fighter - the iconic ‘Supermarine Spitfire’. ‘Fiery-tempered’, ‘easily aroused to anger’, ‘a device that emits fire - especially from a cannon’. Just some of the terms used to describe the Spitfire. An aircraft with a personality all of its own - docile at times, swift and deadly at others. A fighting machine ‘par excellence’. Edited and compiled originally by Jarrod Cotter, the issue will comprise the publication’s now-established high-quality mix of features and photographs. This 132 page glossy A4 perfect bound ‘bookazine’ will include the following: - Early development, the Spitfire’s first flight and shadow factory mass production - Air combat during the Battle of Britain and beyond - Photo reconnaissance Spitfires - varients that flew alone and unarmed to gather vital intelligence - The intricacies of restoring a Spitfire to as-new condition
