Hey FBJ, do you have any more info on this photo ?
Spitfires, they look like Mk.1's
Maybe 1940, around the time of the Battle of Britain.
Designed by Reginald Mitchell back in the 1920's (but the guv said....NO), from Stoke on Trent (my home town) in Jolly Cold.
A flight of Spitfires Mk. I from No. 65 Squadron fly in formation for the benefit of official RAF photographer, 1939. No. 65 Squadron carried the FZ code letters only before the outbreak of war. The nearest aircraft marked as FZ-L, K9906 was also the first to be delivered to the unit in May 1939. It was probably flown here by Sqn/Ldr Robert Stanford Tuck.
