Look Out For...

Our Spitfire has four crosses painted on the side, denoting four German aircraft shot down in combat. What is unusual is these four combat 'kills' were by four different pilots. Coded as Z and designated the 'scratch aircraft of the squadron, this Spitfire was used as the spare for any pilot needing an aircraft.
