The Supermarine Spitfire is a British single-seat fighter aircraft that was used by the RAF and many other Allied countries throughout WWII. The Spitfire's elliptical wing had a thin cross-section, allowing a higher top speed than several contemporary fighters, including the Hawker Hurricane. Speed was seen as essential to carry out the mission of home defence against enemy bombers.
