thanksLast I checked, all aircraft movement cards are held by the RAF's Air Historical Branch. Their contact details are provided in this website:

Best place to go is the RAF Museum rather than the AHB. The AHB holds the records until they've been declassified, after the 30 year rule, then they go to Hendon for public consumption. AHB would probably recommend you go to DoRIS at Hendon. They used to be on microfiche in the Reading Room.
Well...yes and no. I agree that Hendon is probably the best bet in terms of ease of access and speed of response. However, back in the early noughties I regularly visited the AHB to access WW2 Aircraft Movement and Casualty Record Cards. They had an entire room of small wooden drawers filled with cards. That's not to say copies haven't been sent to Hendon but I can't comment on access there because I've never tried it.
many thanksRAF Museum Hendon holds a range of records relating to individual aircraft, see the linked page for details.

If you go to that page on their website, have a look at the 'Archive Collection' listing down the left hand side of the page for details of other archive material in their collection with links to go to descriptions of that material.
However, a quick look in the aircraft details included in 'Spitfire the History' by Morgan & Shacklady gives the following as extracted from the Form 78.
