Spitfire aircraft

From our Picture source: "Produced in greater numbers than any other British combat aircraft before or since the War, 20,341 Spitfires were built in 22 different variants (excluding the navalised Seafire) and the aircraft remained in production for 12 years."

Researching this we came across a little fact we just have to mention: a technical device made to counter engine cut-out in early Spitfires was invented by Beatrice Shilling and was known as "Miss Shilling's orifice".
