Good find. I saved it to my HD. It looks good too, although I prefer the classic elliptical look.

Thanks evangilder, got to say your pictures are amazing. Love that picture. Would love to see one of those in real life. Seen plenty of spitfire's but not a clipped wing one.

Some Spitfire reports. Include a very interesting aileron performance comparison with Curtiss Hawk.
