Spitfire - the airplane that saved Britain - the Awesome World of Things

The Supermarine Spitfire is a British single-seat fighter aircraft that was used by the Royal Air Force and many other Allied countries in the Second World War.
During the Battle of Britain, the Spitfire was perceived by the public
as the main fighter, though the more numerous Hawker Hurricane shouldered a greater proportion of the burden against the Luftwaffe. The Spitfire units had a lower attrition rate and a higher victory-to-loss ratio than those flying Hurricanes.
One of the great Spitfire pilots was Douglas Bader. He was disabled and had lost his legs. However, he overcame this disability and became a high decorated pilot during the second World War.
His story is a personal inspiration as it shows that not matter what, if you have a disability, it does not stop you from exceeding, even in a pursuit where the disability should be a hindrance.
