Spitfire Mk.IX MK923 ZipDive!  Download

File Description:
This is a repaint only for the Aeroplane Heaven/Justflight Spitfire. This particular Spitfire Mk.IX, MK923, has an amazing history behind it. Being built in 1944 it saw service in WWII with 126 Squadron and participated in the D-Day invasion. After the war the aircraft went on to serve in the RNAF and then the Royal Belgian AF. The aircraft was flown in the movie The Longest Day in 1961. MK923 was purchased by actor Cliff Robertson in 1963 and brought to the US, painted in the markings it wore during WWII (126 Suadron), and was flown by legendary WWII RCAF pilot Jerry Billing for 22.5 years on the airshow circuit. Under the controls of Jerry Billing it was the only Spitfire to participate ever in extreme low passes at airshows in the US. In 1994, when Jerry Billing retired from flying the Spitfire, it was sold to Craig McGraw and loaned to the Seattle Museum of Flight where it remains to this day in flying condition but no longer flown.
