A truly legendary machine that was a crucial weapon in the victory of WWII.
Powered by a 2050hp Griffon 65, driving a five-blade Rotol propeller, the Mark XIV had a maximum speed of 443mph at 30,000ft, and could reach a height of 12,000ft in just 2 minutes 51 seconds.
One of the best fighter aircraft of WWII, it was the first Allied plane to bring down a Messerschmitt Me 262, the world’s first operational jet fighter.
The Spitfire is a super popular choice for dog fight sessions at The Aviator Experience. We usually set up Spitty vs Spitty to keep the fight fair!
