Yeah but what if the fascists are on the same side of the Channel as the Spitfires?

“More than 20,000 were built in the 1930s and 1940s but only around 35 remain in the skies.”

Years I knew a guy that probably still has one, if he’s still alive, I haven’t seen him in almost 50 years.

Nelson Whitman was given a fuly restored one by his father when he returned from Korea in 1952

If we could build 20,000 more of them they would make quite an impressive Air Force, especially when you consider that a country like Iran has just aging F-14’s, even China would pause a bit.

20,000 available would decimate an incoming aerial landing force, too many for any sophisticate missile control.

20,000 would probably cost only a couple of F-22’s or F-35’s.
