I can recommend this book to modelers, aviation historians and those looking for a nice tome for their coffee table. The photographs alone are worth the price of admission! All will like it and find useful information within its covers.
In all, it makes for an excellent combination history/photo book that no fan of the subject or war birds in general should be without.
If you appreciate the graceful curves of Supermarine's fighter and eye-popping photography, you'll love this book.
Fine Scale Modeler
. . . a work that can enjoyed by either a casual flip-through or an intense reading.
Not only do you get stunning pictures of flying Spitfires but it's also a beautiful portrait of England from the air.
With graceful lines and patrician curves, the Supermarine Spitfire doesn't have a bad side, a truth photographer John Dibbs exploits for this coffee table book, which glorifies the majestic fighter from every conceivable angle and in a variety of light conditions. There are some 50 Spitfires still flying, and Dibbs has shot nearly all of them. The book also features dozens of archival images and first-hand accounts from the men who flew the Spitfire in combat.
