Robert Erenstein submitted this photo and note: “In Europe there are many enthusiasts trying to keep history alive. Besides US-built aircraft, there is still a number of the famous Supermarine Spitfires airworthy today. This specific one entered service with the Royal Air Force in 1942 and has a confirmed number of seven kills during World War II. After the war it was used as an instructional airframe and gate guard. It became famous as static aircraft in the famous ‘Battle of Britain’ movie of 1969. It was restored to flying condition and took to the sky again in 1995. Today she is part of The Fighter Collection Fleet. Its attractive shape and above all its music-producing engine can be seen and heard at airshows throughout Europe.”
