Own a unique and well-preserved piece of World War II aviation history!
The Supermarine Spitfire PR Mk. XIX was the last of the specialized photo reconnaissance variants of the Spitfire, the only one with a Griffon engine and arguably the finest and fastest of all of the Spitfire variants. Delivered to the Royal Air Force (RAF) from mid-1944 to shortly after the end of World War II, it provided the RAF with a formidable intelligence-gathering platform - the SR-71 Blackbird of its day. By the end of the war, this mark had virtually replaced the earlier PR Mk. XI for long range duties, but more notably it lasted in front-line service up to the early 1950s, still excelling at high altitude despite the fact that its projected opposition then included jet fighters.
This section of original fabric, with original PRU Blue paint, was cut from the horizontal tail surface from a Spitfire PR Mk. XIX in 1946.
Each wall-hanging display is 13x19-inches (outside frame size) and is delivered ready-to-hang.
