"PAT" Spitfire Polish Skin


Recommended Posts



Spitfire LFMk.IXc, MH712, flown by W/O Henryk Dygala,

No. 302 Squadron, Summer / Autumn, 1944


Polish No. 302 Squadron was one of the units that participated in the invasion

of Normandy in June, 1944, as can be deduced from the D-Day stripes

painted on the lower sides of fuselage and wings. This aircraft was equipped

with wing racks for 250lb bombs. The pointed rudder was freshly painted

andso accordingly, the colours appeared darker than the rest of the aircraft.

Nose art was not particularly common within the RAF, so the girl sitting on

the bombis a nice exception.
