This simple image depicts a Supermarine Spitfire landing after a days hectic action. The lucky survivor will live to fight another day. So many very young boys with only a few hours experience on the type would not be so lucky. These men and boys, although not mentioned in books and films by name, must never be forgotten.
The landing of a Spitfire was indeed the trickiest part of any manoeuvre due to the very narrow undercarriage, often resulting in the aircraft 'weather cocking' and rendering it u/s for some considerable time.
