Spitfire PR Mk XIX - Barrel roll - by rOEN911 Spitfire PR Mk XIX - Barrel roll - by rOEN911
The Spitfire PR Mk XIX was the last of the specialised photo reconnaissance Spits and the only one with a Griffon engine, being delivered to the RAF from mid-1944 to shortly after the end of WWII.

The Mk XIX was unarmed and could carry two vertical cameras and/or one oblique camera in a heated compartment aft of the cockpit. It had a top speed of 716 km/h, a cruising speed of 430 km/h and a ceiling of about 13000 metres. With an external auxiliary tank, the total fuel capacity was 1563 litres and top range 2250 kilometres. The cockpit was pressurised with the aid of an engine-driven blower.

Wonderful drawing! ^_^ It surely captures the PR.19's sleek lines very well!

It also has to be noted that the PR.19 was (is?) the last variant of the Spitfire in RAF service, 'officially' retiring (from front-line service) in 1954; again retiring in 1957 from RAF liaison services; making its last operational sortie for the RAF in 1963 (in mock combat trials with the EE Lightning, in anticipation of an eventual confrontation between the RAF and Indonesian Air Force P-51D Mustangs); and actually still in service nowadays with the RAF's Battle of Britain Memorial Flight - 68 years after the mark, and 74 years after the type entered service...

Indeed it is. It's been flying its 'retirement sortie' for a good 58 years now - far longer than its 'operational career'... XD
