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