The Spitfire Mk XIX was powered by a Griffon engine with a speed of 445mph/716km/h, and a ceiling of 42,000 feet. It had a range of 1,400 miles. The unarmed reconnaissance variant carried two cameras. The last versions of the Spitfire remained in service up to the early 1950's.

It's a shot in the RAF's Battle of Britain Memorial Flight Hanger at RAF Coningsby. The Lancaster is PA474, "Thumper"

This is not a museum exhibit. This is the Battle of Britain Memorial flight at their home base RAF Conningsby Lincolnshire UK
The Lancaster pictured is PA474 one of only 2 airworthy Lancasters.
