RAF Museum Spitfire marks the 75th anniversary of VE Day.
The world’s oldest Supermarine Spitfire Mk1, on display at the Royal Air Force Museum Cosford, is illuminated red, white and blue to mark the 75th anniversary of VE Day.
The Spitfire is the most famous British fighter aircraft in history and a symbol of victory. Its groundbreaking design and superior specifications gave the British a decisive advantage over their rivals. The Spitfire was produced in greater numbers than any other British combat aircraft before or since the War.
The Royal Air Force Museum, the National Army Museum and the National Museum of the Royal Navy are joining forces to host their first tri-service celebration with a Virtual VE Day 75 Festival taking place online from 7-9 May 2020, bringing to life the stories of those who helped deliver Victory in Europe.
