The aircraft  markings include D-Day invasion recognition stripes and the Canadian maple leaf emblem.
This is commemorative pack also includes a highly detailed diecast model of the Spitfire's powerplant, the Rolls-Royce Merlin engine, in 1/24 scale. Rated at 1,000bhp when the Spitfire was designed, the Mk.Ix was powered by 1,500 or 1,700bhp versions. The Merlin achieved excellent reliability and powered many RAF aircraft, from the Spitfire, Hurricane and Mustang fighters to the potent Mosquitos and Lancaster heavy bombers. Even today its great sound is instantly recognisable if one passes overhead. Display stands are supplied for both the aircraft and engine models.The Mark 9 was a potent version of the Spitfire with two wing cannons and a four bladed prop giving plenty of pulling power. Duties in August 1944 would have included providing fighter cover for Allied forces and interdiction over? northern France, disrupting German supply lines and destroying transport vehicles.

To provide airborne targets for the USAF and the U.S. Navy, eight early model C-130A Hercules were converted to carry up to four drones on  underwing pylons, capable of release at altitudes up to 35,000 ft. Originally designated GC-130A, the aircraft carried a seven/eight man crew, who  operated the release, control and monitoring equipment. Systems developed for the redesignated DC-130A were compatible with the whole range of Ryan and Northdrop drones ordered for the USAF and U.S. Navy. Of the eight conversions all were delivered initially to the USAF, but in 1969 two  were updated and transferred to the U.S. Navy, being delivered to VC-3 squadron at North Island Naval Air Station, California. The first of these was 158228 (construction number 3048), which was initially serialled 55-0021 when delivered as a C-130A to the USAF in February 1957.

John Moore scored his final four victories in this aircraft, the last of which took the form of a Zeke off Manus Island. Early photos of this P-47D  suggest the fighter was conventionally camouflaged at some point, prior to adopting this unique scheme, the purpose of which has never been  explained. After completing his stint as 341st FS CO in July 1944, John  Moore was transferred to the group's HQ Flight and remained here until lost in action on 8th October during a dive bombing mission over Ceram Island, west of New Guinea, in P-47-23 43-27597.
Republic P-47D Thunderbolt Designed by Alexander Kartveli meeting a USAAC requirement for a heavy fighter, the P-47 was first flown on May 6th, 1941. Later models featured a "bubble-top" canopy rather than the sharply peaked "razorback" fuselage which resulted in poor visibility for the aircraft's pilot. The P-47, a deadly  pursuit aircraft, featured 8 x 12.7mm machine guns; all mounted in the wings. Even with the complicated turbosupercharger system, the sturdy  airframe and tough radial engine, the P-47 ("Jug" or "Juggernaut" as it was nicknamed) could absorb damage and still return home. Built in greater  quantities than any other US fighter, the P-47 was the heaviest single-engine WWII fighter and the first piston-powered fighter to exceed 500 mph.
