Supermarine Spitfire Restoration Manual
Supermarine Spitfire Restoration Manual: An Insight into Building, Restoring and Returning Spitfires to the Skies (ISBN 9780857332240)
The Spitfire remains one of the most iconic combat aircraft and to own an airworthy example is the Holy Grail for warbird collectors. For an aircraft that first flew more than 70 years ago it may seem incongruous that there is a flourishing industry centered on this aircraft in the 21st century. Whether scratch-building or restoring an original Spitfire to airworthy condition, this is big business where aircraft change hands for several million pounds. Paul and Louise Blackah reveal what it takes to build or restore a Spitfire and return it to the skies.
