    I was up in RAF Coningsby working in the BBMF Hanger when they had one of these in for a re-build (they were going to sell one of the other aircraft to pay for it at the time)

    Absolutely Beautiful, Clave !

    Have you ever done the contraprop Spitfires?
    I'm thinking of JK535 and others of a year or so later.
    Gorgeous-looking Spitfires.

    The other "oddity" is EN530, a Mk VB Captured and re-engined with a DB605 for test purposes.

    Those would make for highly unsual and extremely interesting pictures.
    Cheers, and Thanks for a beautiful piece of art.

    Kind Regards, Uyraell.

    Hmmm, powerful variant, but the Griffon potrudes too much, its lacks the elegance of Merlin spitfires.

    I agree the Griffon_Spitfires are less elegant, though to my eyes, they show a design maturity the Merlin_Spitfires do not.
    However, Panzerknacker, you do raise an interesting point, with mentioning elegance.
    One reason I like the contraprop Spitfires is that (to my eyes, at least) the 5-bladed prop variants always looked significantly less elegant than the three, four, or 6-bladed (ie. contraprop). Five blades seemed to make the aircraft "chunky" and "boilerplate" -looking.

    Warm Regards, Uyraell.

    Photography is a mirror of its time and the genuine historical document that must influence future impressions of a period that can never be repeated. Periods tend to be remembered by the people who were active in them, and we are fortunate in having a number of pictorial relics connected with personalities and material artifacts – some famous, some simply notorious, but all dearly remembered – who gave the significant impact upon one epoch as well as an distinctive flavor of great times of yore.

    Instead of just another incomplete treatise about a true masterpiece of the art of mechanical design and creator of history that even today captures our fascination, instead of making an additional and unavoidably repetitious discourse about the object that symbolizes something greater than its mere form or function, let us commence with an highly individual snapshot coupled with the object of our devotion:



    Connie Edwards with MK IXs and Mk XIVs at Debden in 1969. Photo taken by Mr. David James.

    As you know, the making of the "The Battle of Britain" probably was the greatest single factor in turning the tide on the almost total extinction of airworthy Spitfires. By the beginning of 1968, 27 (about two squadrons) of Spitfires were brought together for active filming, 12 of which were in flyable condition.

    Wilson Connell "Connie" Edwards was one of four pilots of the Confederate Air Force (a living museum in Texas dedicated to preserving WW II aircrafts) to fly some of the Bouchons used in "The Battle of Britain" film. However, he was pictured against the Spitfires, with a snapshot that does raise some pleasant memories about an airplane which represents not only the final stage of a marvelous technical development that had started in thirties, but also the apotheosis of the spirit and everlasting human values deeply embedded into early 1940s.

    And for the poll - Mk XIV, an astonishing and truly inspiring combination of power, mobility, agility and sturdiness.
