The Spitfire was a beautiful design with no real nasty habbits, other than landings and takeoff’s could be tricky. And it looked good in PINK TOO!
Armed with only cameras, a bigger Rolls Royce Merlin engine and a larger oil tank, this fighter’s only defense was speed; get in and get out. Photo planes such as this, played a vital role to the war effort in providing target information and damage assessment. There were two color schemes used by the British, desert pink and azure blue. The pink was used for hazy days and the blue was used for high altitude. Later in the war armed photo planes became available as new radical engines were produced such as the Rolls Royce Grifton.
