Happy birthday Supermarine Spitfire!

Happy 78th birthday to the Supermarine Spitfire. On this day in in 1936, R.J. Mitchell's beautiful design took to the skies for the first time. The elliptical wing of the Spitfire was and still is one of the most efficient ever built.

"We looked at this thing, we walked around it, we stroked it, we sat in it. I fell in love with it. It was the most beautiful thing I have ever seen." RAF Wing Commander Bob Doe.

It definitely is to me, at least, the most beautiful airplane ever made.
You know, I told my wife today that I love her just as much as the ole Spit, and that she should be lucky, because it was my first love, after all. I'm glad she has a very good sense of humor.

Post pics of your favorite variants, pictures, etc, if you wish. And don't forget to wish it a happy birthday!

Please don't get mad at me, but I was given a choice between an actual Spitrfire and your wife...?

No worries. I'd choose the Spitfire.
