DiffractionLtd: The Spitfire was to WWII what something like the F-15 is to air warfare now. The Typhoon...well....
Great shot though.

Don't forget the contribution of the Hawker Hurricane - most people do. Although overshadowed in the public consciousness by the Supermarine Spitfire's role during the Battle of Britain in 1940, the Hurricane actually inflicted 60 percent of the losses sustained by the Luftwaffe in the engagement. The Hurricane went on to fight in all the major theatres of the Second World War.
