This book is the result of the authors collaboration with shipping magnate, Peter Livanos, a collector of classic aircraft. It is centred on Livanos’ Spitfire, the famous AR213, the only airworthy MkI in the world, and its restoration. This heavily illustrated publication presents the Spitfire in an attractive, beautifully photographed and colourful format. Like the restoration itself, nothing has been spared in producing an unusually handsome book to celebrate all aspects of the Spitfire legend and the Livanos example of it
Due to excessively high wrapped weight overseas shipping is weighted on this title
SPITFIRE – THE ONE
Spitfire THE ONE is an in-depth study that is centred around a MKI variant AR213, it discusses the early role of Spitfire and that of AR213. The story is not solely about AR213 but is used as a story line where the Battle of Britain and flying the Spitfire from the pilots perspective are all featured as is the Marvellous Rolls-Royce engine which powered many wartime Spitfires. The story brings the aeroplane right up-to-date where its role in films is discussed through to modern day uses. The final section is back to AR213 where its restoration completed back to airworthy condition. This a superbly illustrated and well produced homage to the iconic Spitfire.
