The Spitfire was, and to most people still is, simply the most beautiful aircraft ever built. Upon every pilot that ever flew it, this little fighter left a deep and lasting impression. Like the finest thoroughbred, it embodied grace and elegance with speed and agility, and it flew superbly. In the hands of its greatest pilots the Spitfire was unbeatable in one-to-one combat.
In Robert Taylor’s masterful study of the legendary fighter, AFTER THE BATTLE, a flight of MkIX Spitfires, generally considered to have been the greatest of all Spitfire marks, return to their R.A.F. base at Kenley in July, 1942. High on adrenaline after a dogfight with German Fw190s over France, the pilots make their high speed run for home above the distinctive patchwork fields of Southern England.
