You can't have too many pictures (virtual or not) of the most iconic and beautiful warplane ever to grace the skies, so here's another one, of Gordon Olive's kite from 65 Squadron. Several of his vivid post war paintings (reproduced in 'Spitfire Ace') of his air battles from May to September 1940 show his aeroplanes, but he portrays all the British fighters with the Sky spinners and rear fuselage bands that were only introduced about November 1940. But this is how the Spits he flew would really have looked, during the Battle.
