Product Description

PS915 entered service just after WWII, joining 541 Sqn in June 1945 before moving to the PR Development Unit to take part in tests of new cameras. She joined the BBMF in 1987 after being modified to take an ex-Shackleton Griffon engine and refurbished to flying condition. Today the aircraft is restored in the markings of Spitfire PR XIX, PS888, of 81 Sqn, based at Seletar in Singapore. This aircraft conducted the last ever operational sortie by an RAF Spitfire as part of Operation Firedog, during the Malayan Emergency, when, on 1 April 1954, it flew a photographic mission over an area of jungle in Johore thought to contain hideouts for Communist guerrillas. To mark the occasion the aircraft’s ground crew painted the inscription ‘The Last!’ on the port side of the nose cowling.
