Supermarine Spitfire Mk.IX (BF273) RAF Special Service Flight ZipDive!  Download

File Description:
This folder contains a repaint for the Spitfire Mk.IX by FlyingIron, in the colors of Spitfire IXc BF273 was one of the Spitfires modified for high altitude interceptions, based at Northolt, 1942, and regularly flown by F/O Prince Emanuel Galtzine. The prince was a Russian immigrant, a great grandson of Tsar Paul 1. After the Russian revolution, his family fled Russia, ending up in England. He wanted to fly, and when the Russian attacked Finland, he decided to join the Finnish Air Force. However, on hearing his mother was killed in the London blitz, he returned to the uK (via the US and Canada) and joined the RAF, becoming a Spitfire pilot with the Special Service Flight in Northolt. On 12 spetember 1942, he intercepted a JU-86 above Southhampton at 41.000ft and attacked it. The battle went up to 43.000 ft, and was the highest recorded air battle of WWII. His spitfire only had two cannons, and one of them was frozen solid, giving a very unbanaced flight while shooting, combined with excessive vapor trails of his ammunition. It is believe he manged to hit the german aircraft, but in the end it got away safely. However, since the Germans now knew they could be intercepted, they launched no more high altitue attacks on the UK. This paint was included in the original package, but I wasn't happy with the colour, so I redid it completely in what I believe is the correct tint of PRU Blue. Repaint by Jan Kees Blom
