Artist's Description

A digital painting, using Whistler’s Rainbow in DAP, of probably the most famous airplane of the Second World War, the Spitfire. A PD image was used for the digital painting.

No image may be reproduced, copied, edited, published, or uploaded without my permission.

This is an example of the LF type with clipped wings to improve low-altitude performance and enhance the roll rate.
The Spitfire was the only aircraft that could really rival the German fighters (in particular at the time of the Battle of Britain). The first prototype took off on March 5, 1936, in Eastleigh (Hampshire) and was piloted by Mutt Summers. The British officers were very impressed. The Spitfire was remarkably easy to handle and its graceful lines helped make it an instant legend.
