Not only was the Spitfire one of the most famous British aircraft of the 20th century; it was also one of the most important aircraft of the Second World War. The Spitfire was continuously improved during WW2 and the Spitfire Mk IXe entered service in the summer of 1944. It featured a Merlin 70 engine which allowed for a maximum speed of 404 mph. It could climb to a maximum altitude of 42,500 feet, with an incredible power (for it's time) of 1,720 hp! The rate of climb was 4,745 feet per minute.
