SPITFIRE

" The Spitfire was a thing of beauty to behold, in the air or on the ground, with the graceful lines of its slim fuselage, its elliptical wing and tailplane. It looked like a fighter, and it certainly proved to be just that in the fullest meaning of the term. It was an aircraft with a personality all of its own -- docile at times, swift and deadly at others -- a fighting machine 'par excellence'.
  It was the finest and, in its days of glory, provided the answer to the fighter pilot's dream -- a perfect combination of all the good qualities required in a truly outstanding fighter aircraft.
Once you've flown a Spitfire, it spoils you for all other fighters. Every other aircraft seems imperfect in one way or another. "


Lieutenant Colonel William R. Dunn, Eagle Squadron, Royal Air Force

The reel is dedicated to probably the best, most beautiful and legendary airplane ever made - Supermarine Spitfire! As an aviation engineer myself it was a real joy and at the same time a great responsibility to work on this reel project!
