Flite Test Spitfire Battle of Britain
The first Flite Test warbird and a fan favorite, the FT Spitfire now has a great new look you can build and enjoy! Designed by DavidWindestål (our favorite Swed!) in 2017, the FT Spitfire is a joy to fly and known for it’s wonderful flight characteristics. Depicted is a livery that might be seen in the skies over England from Aug to Sept of 1940 just as the “Battle of Britain” was winding down and the “Blitz” was gearing up. The real The Supermarine Spitfire is a British single-seat fighter aircraft used by the Royal Air Force and other Allied countries before, during, and after World War II. Many variants of the Spitfire were built, using several wing configurations, and it was produced in greater numbers than any other British aircraft. It was also the only British fighter produced continuously throughout the war. The Spitfire continues to be popular among enthusiasts; nearly 60 remain airworthy, and many more are static exhibits in aviation museums throughout the world. You can also try the Spitfire in an early Battle of Britain “Night/White” livery for the ultimate in orientational help and historical accuracy!
