I cant imagine this all happening in the sky above me-The contrails left by dogfights between the RAF and the Luftwaffe on September 15, 1940. On this day the the RAF claimed 176 aircraft Luftwaffe shot down in two major raids on London. This day was the turning point for the campaign and became known as Battle of Britain Day.

Magazine centrefold showing different versions of the Spitfire painted in the markings of various squadrons and air forces. Profiles of this type provide invaluable reference for researchers and aircraft modellers. Designed by Reginald Mitchell and powered by a Rolls-Royce Merlin engine, the Spitfire was integral to Britain's front-line air defence during World War II, and together with the Hawker Hurricane fighter played a key role in the Battle of Britain of 1940
