Spitfire PR.XI


An actual 400 Squadron Spitfire somewhere in England

In June 1943, the squadron was reassigned to the fighter reconnaissance role and the unarmed PR Spitfire XI arrived.

Story of L/Col John S. Blyth, USAF, (Retired - 1968)

The following documentary video is really worth a watch.  It contains much footage of the Spitfire XI, just like the ones 400 Squadron flew except ours were armed and the Spitfire 944 shown in the video was unarmed.  It's also a very interesting story of how a grandson tracked down L/Col Bllyth, a member of his grandfather's squadron.
