It has come to represent Britain's fighting spirit, a symbol of the courage of our wartime pilots as well as the excellence of our engineers.
And now a full-sized silver replica of a Supermarine Spitfire is planned to sit alongside Langham Dome in north Norfolk.
An application has been put in to North Norfolk District Council to mount the replica on a plinth next to the building once used to train anti-aircraft gunners off Cockthorpe Road.
The Spitfire would be 9.5m long and boast a wingspan of 11.2m.
The installation would help mark this year's centenary of the Royal Air Force.
