Product Info

Representing two iconic British aircraft designs of the 20th century, the Supermarine Spitfire and BAe Hawk may have been developed during different eras of aviation technology, however, they are both instantly recognisable to millions of people. As Britain's most famous fighting aeroplane, the Spitfire is still viewed as the aircraft which came to the nation's rescue during the dark days of the Battle of Britain and its distinctive elliptical wing is still regarded as a design classic. In this set we offer the MkV Spitfire - a more powerful version used by over 140 RAF Squadrons and nine other nations including the USSR and United States.

As the mount of the world famous Red Arrows, the BAe Hawk is now unquestionably the aircraft which has come to represent the professionalism of the modern Royal Air Force and with 44 years exceptional service already to its name, even eclipses the service life of the famous Spitfire. During this year's Battle of Britain 80th anniversary commemorations, enthusiasts will be hoping to see the Hawks of the Red Arrows performing several evocative formation flypasts with Spitfires and Hurricanes at a number of Airshow events during the summer months.
