Repaint for RealAir's Spitfire Mk IX 2007 depicting the RAF's Battle of Britain Memorial Flight's Spitfire in its 2008 colors and squadron code of UF-Q. The aircraft flew in this scheme with 601 Squadron during 1944, flying its first operational mission from Westhampnett on 14 April 1944 as part of a "Rodeo" fighter sweep over occupied France. Textures by Grant MacLean/Sean Moloney/RealAir.

Depicts the Spitfire of the RAF's Battle of Britain Memorial Flight which in 2008 wore the colours and squadron code of UF-Q, an aircraft flying in this scheme with 601 Squadron during 1944. Initially allocated to 443 ‘Hornet’ Squadron, Royal Canadian Air Force -- which became part of 44 Canadian Wing commanded by Wing Commander J. E. ‘Johnny’ Johnson -- the aircraft was based at various locations on the South Coast of England. It flew its first operational mission from Westhampnett on 14 April 1944 as part of a ‘Rodeo’ fighter sweep over occupied France.

Rivet-counters will note that the model's canopy frame is painted silver rather than the green of the 2008 BBMF aircraft. In my view this h detracts from the aircraft's overall look and, lacking a photograph of the 1944 colours I've chosen to believe that the original aircraft had the silver/metal frame.
