Climb inside the cock-pit with reproductions of control diagrams and textual handling notes, as used by the pilots of the day. Presenting the progression from the Mk1, Mk9 and, the ultimate fighter, the Mk16 Spitfire from 1943 with its American-built Packard Merlin 266 engine. With increased power, performance and agile capability this is a fascinating collection of original guidance.
