Preparing to Scramble PLQ1 Plaque

Numbered Edition

Designer Paul Hilditch chose to work with the Spitfire, probably the most famous and most respected aircraft of all time, with good reason to single out the mechanics and the engineers as the heroes. The Spitfire was the brainchild of Reginald Joseph Mitchell CBE FRAeS, (Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire and Fellow of the Royal Aeronautical Society) one of our most celebrated aeronautical engineers. Mitchell was born in 115 Congleton Road, Butt Lane, Kidsgrove, Stoke-on- Trent where he attended Hanley Grammar School. By 1919, he had become Chief Designer at Supermarine Aviation in Southampton, later acquired by Vickers. Although he died at the age of 42 his basic design was so sound that the Spitfire was continually improved throughout the Second World War.
